I mentioned in a previous post that I had received a couple of Reading Journal proofs to preview before publishing them.
I was very happy with the quality of them, but I noticed a few things that I wanted to change before actually hitting “publish”. I updated them right away and ordered two new proofs.
Well, those updated proofs have now arrived!
Obviously the covers are completely different from the first proofs. As I had mentioned in my previous post, there are a total of 12 different journal options.
There are seven cover options to choose from with thin ruled lines.
There are five cover options to choose from with thick ruled lines. The rectangle on the covers can be used to write the journal owner’s name if desired. It’s also a nice way to easily tell the journals apart between wide ruled and thin ruled lines. All of the journals that include a name box on the front have wide ruled lines.
Since I liked how the cover pictures of the first two proofs turned out, I decided to order different covers with updated interiors for my second set of proofs.
Again, I chose to order one with wide ruled lines and one with thin ruled lines to preview the insides of each.
These large 8.5″ x 11″ soft cover reading journals have space to record a total of 100 books. Other than the spacing options, the insides are practically the same.
The interior contents include:
- Total of 124 pages
- A page to write the name of the journal owner
- Personalized Table of Contents – journal owner writes the title of each book on the line next to its number to easily refer back to specific books
- Letter to reader that explains each section, what the different numbers of stars mean for rating books, the difference between fiction and nonfiction books with examples, and some ideas to include in the section to write additional thoughts and comments
- 100 pages to record 100 different books with space to:
- write the book title, author, and number of pages
- color in stars for a personalized book rating
- fill in a circle next to the word fiction or nonfiction
- write the date started and date ended
- write any additional thoughts or comments about the book
- Comes in two choices: thin ruled lines or wide ruled lines (as seen in picture)
- Pages to record new words and definitions
- Pages to write the titles of books to read in the future
- An everything else section that includes information about me, image acknowledgments*, copyright information, and additional cover design options
My daughters were really excited to get the proofs, and they have already begun using them as their own reading journals.
My cat was excited to get the box. Infact, he sat next to the box waiting for me to set it on the ground for him.
As soon as it was on the ground, he was in the box.
After previewing the journals, I uploaded all of the interior files and clicked the button to publish them.
It may take up to 72 hours for the journals to be approved by Amazon. If they aren’t approved, I’ll have to figure out why and go from there to finish them. If they are approved, they will be available on Amazon for $6.95 each.
I’ll let you know when they are officially available for purchase! (Update: These journals are officially available for purchase. Go to journals to see all of the options.)
Do you record books you read? If so, how?
