Are you the kind of reader who loves lists of books? Do you read literary fiction? Oprah's book selections? Read, Remember, Recommend: A Reading Journal for Book Lovers was created by Rachelle Rogers Knight just for you. Or, since we're all looking for the perfect gift this time of year, this might be the present for the book lover you know.
This is a useful tool for any book fanatic who loves literary fiction. It not only provides a place for them to keep track of their books, but it offers all kinds of suggestions for future reading. The format is very attractive. For each title listed, there is a place for the reader to check if they own the book, would recommend it, want to read it, or want to buy it or check it out from the library.
There are great lists. It lists the Pulitzer Prize winners for fiction, winners of the Book Sense Book of the Year Award, and numerous other fiction award winners. There are lists of notable books, such as Oprah Winfrey's book selections, and The Modern Library's list of 100 Best Books of the last century. There are enough book titles here to keep a reader happy for life. There are even a couple pages of website listings for future reference.
And, of course, there are the blank pages to journal thoughts about books, comments, and lists. At $14.95, this is a priceless gift for the avid book lover who enjoys literary fiction. I have a family member in mind.
As for me? I'm eagerly awaiting the reading journal for mystery readers. I know I'm not the target market for a literary journal. But, I'm coveting those mystery lists.
