Review

If you have a teen that loves to read, this book would make a great gift. (Connect with Your Teens Through Pop Culture and Technology 2010-04-02)

This is a definite MUST HAVE! (Mundie Moms 2010-04-02)

Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens Created by Rachel Rogers Knight is an incredibly useful resource for all teen readers. It is divided into six main sections, each of which is invaluable.
(Mrs. Magoo Reads 2010-04-08)

I absolutely love this journal! I think it's an absolutely great idea. I love how it is set up. It's really simple to record everything and keep organized.
(The Book Cellar 2010-04-10)

I totally recommend this journal to anyone who enjoys reading YA and is a pen/paper journal writer type like me. But even if you're not a pen/paper type this book is great anyway because it's a fantastic resource book for YA lovers because like I mentioned above, there are hundreds of books listed here as well as helpful websites and blogs and it even list and defines literary terms and all nicely organized. I think this book journal deserves 5 out of 5 stars!
(Michelle and Leslie's Book Picks 2010-04-14)

"Don't miss out on this title... it will be loved, used, read, written upon, and referenced again and again." (Diane Chen SLJ Practically Paradise 2010-04-15)

Overall this was a very unique journal that every major book lover should have. It is great help in finding and recording books and I loved the colorful tabs that were easy to flip to.
(BookMac 2010-04-18)

Not only helpful to teachers, bloggers, and people in book clubs, Read, Recommend is the ideal book journal for everyone who loves to read--and to have one specialized in YA is just a cherry on top! (Bookworm Readers 2010-04-19)

I definitely recommend this journal for people who like reading challenges, collecting/recording reading recommendations, and/or would like to read some good books published in the past that they may not have heard of. (Story On A Page 2010-04-21)

It is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. (Katie's Book Blog 2010-04-22)

Many social booksites have similar features as those that are available in this journal, but you're sometimes limited with what you can do online. For readers who love to write and for those who prefer keeping notes via the old ways of the pen, this journal could be your best friend.
(Better with Books 2010-04-22)

This is a really awesome book. All you readers and bloggers out there: you need to get this journal! (Books & Literature for Teens 2010-04-23)

More About the Author

I am passionate about books. I love to share great books I've read, chat about books and hear new reading suggestions.

A few years ago, after my second baby was born, my reading life was lost in scrapes of paper. Myriad reading suggestions in the form of magazine and newspaper clippings, emails and names jotted down on old receipts littered my nightstand and purse. When I was able to get to the bookstore for some quality alone shopping time, I was unsure of what to get. I knew I had month's worth of suggestions built up - but where? I wanted to read a Pulitzer Prize winning book from the previous year, but
couldn't remember where I had put the list tracking my 'Pulitzer Challenge'. I was at a loss at my monthly book club to offer feedback about the month's selection. I knew I had some noteworthy discussion points and assumed I would remember them for the meeting.

In a pursuit to get my notes organized, I created an all-inclusive reading journal. Read, Remember, Recommend was born. No longer would I want for a place to quickly jot down a must-needed book or an author's name after hearing an interview. When reading late night in bed with thoughts of the book I was reading buzzing in my head, I now had a place to record these fleeting thoughts and comments. When I researched the location or setting of a particular book, I could record websites to share with my book group. My reading life was now organized.

Another reason I created the Read, Remember, Recommend reading journal series is to help bring notable literature to the attention of all readers. People who are passionate about reading are perpetually searching for noteworthy suggestions. If you are going to spend time reading, you want to be acquainted with exceptional literature. The lists in the journals offer stacks of suggestions in both contemporary and classic literature, spanning centuries. Each list represents the inspiration and effort of an individual or group of people devoted to publicizing what they believe are examples of the world's greatest literature.

As humans, we were born to gather. And we love to look at what we've collected. We bibliophiles (book lovers) need to gather books. We can't deny it--and shouldn't try. And who among us can resist a good annotated list? It is wonderful to turn over the pages of a reading journal--your personal bookshelf in miniature--to see what you have assembled. These journals were created with the book lover in mind. I hope that there size, its ease of use, and the information contained within it will inspire active and involved reading. We also hope it will help you savor your reading accomplishments. When you've scrutinized the lists, go back, note the check marks, check your notes,and celebrate! What you have read will be yours forever.

Read, Remember, Recommend is a reading journal and tool. It has dividers in it with 6 different sections including awards and notable lists, recommendations and resources! This is great for people who prefer to write down their lists of books to read, have read and wish lists. For me, I use sites like goodreads to keep track of all my books.

The thing I like the most about Read, Remember, Recommend is the references and resources list. It has a list of Teen Library Sites, Literary Terms (which is super helpful), Teen Reading Sites and Young Adult blogs (which I thought was a great idea)!

So if you're into more of writing down things than joining sites like goodreads I would totally recommend this nifty journal. But if you're like me and would rather use sites, this would still be a good thing to have in your collection for the resource section!

Some things are harder to review than others. READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND FOR TEENS is probably best for people who like to stay organized and can keep up with things. Generally I try to, but I always forget tools like this and use them sporadically.

I like the list. They're a good way to keep track of what awards reward books you like and such. (I also learned I need to read more nonfiction and Canadian authors.) My main complaint is that there's no way to mark books that you've read but don't own. I suppose you could use the "Recommend" box, but personally, I don't like every book I read. I settled for writing "have read" in the margin. Sometimes there are mistakes on the lists, like Holly Black's KIN: THE GOOD NEIGHBORS being listed under "nonfiction."

One of the best things about the lists though was learning about awards that I'd never heard of, like the Alex Awards, which are for adult books with appeal to young adults. I'd only read a few of the winners, but many of the rest look like something I would enjoy. A number of the winners are books I'd heard of but wasn't sure if I'd like.

There's a "To Read" section, which I might use to jot down things I see interesting reviews for. I wouldn't actually write down what I'm planning to read as I tend to change my mind about that too often. There are 64 boxes in which to record your "To Read" books. Next are a series of "Journal Pages" to keep track of what you're reading - you can put it in a simple list or fill out more detailed cards. Helpful for some people, but I'd forget to do it after a week. Same with the "Recommendations" section.

The section I really love is the "Loaner Lists." Title, loaned to, when borrowed, when returned.

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

One thing my mom has always done is keep a notebook full of the book titles she reads each year. She told me to do this as a kid, but of course, I didn't listen, and now I wish I had lists of books that I read as a child and teen. Now I keep a journal, but it's no where as extensive and detailed as this one.

Read, Remember, Recommend is a great place to start book journaling. I like the fact that there are extensive award winner lists and you can mark each title with read, want to read, own, recommend. There are some genre booklists, and while they aren't incredibly extensive, they could be a good starting point. I would have liked to see longer read alike and genre lists.

I like the reference list in the back-teen library sites, book blogs, author websites are listed. (And I'm excited to say that GreenBeanTeenQueen is listed as a resource-how cool is that?) I also liked the resources for parents, although it is very short-I wish more could have been listed. I would have also liked to see more listed on the Teen Reading Sites list-TeensReadToo.com wasn't listed at all!

The actual journal part of the book leaves something to be desired. I have really bad handwriting and I need a lot of space to write, so small boxes for books to read and a small box for notes won't really work for me. I need more space to write. I also thought the actual journal pages section was pretty short-only four pages to journal. If you read a lot like me (and need larger pages) you'll fill up those pages easily. I do like the fact that there are sections to record your thoughts which encourages teens to think critically about their reading and write reviews.

I find it hard to rate and review a journal, but I'll give it my best shot. This journal is an interesting idea, which is why I said yes when the publisher offered it to me. At first flip through, I thought wow this is pretty awesome. A good portion of the book is dedicated to awards and lists. These include The National Book Award, Aesop Award, Urban Lit, Harry Potter read-alikes, and Fairy Tale retellings. I feel this section is a tad overwhelming. There doesn't seem to be a particular oder to it. There's also just too much information here with no real way to weed through it. There are no descriptions, or even cover photo's. So basically, the title has to catch my interest and then go look the book up to see if I might be interested. I have been going through it slowly and adding books to my to-read list.
The next sections are the journal pages. As a teen, I might have used this more. There is a to read section to mark down all the books you discover. I can't imagine doing this by hand anymore. I love goodreads way to much. There are also journal pages which I've decided to give a shot. I've never journaled about what I read before. But, even these seem a little strange. There are short forms that I tried to use, but there isn't enough space really. Every few pages there are more detailed forms that I do like. Although, I do use the words to define section for recording thoughts. I do really like the passages to remember section. I'm constantly finding quotes in books and think to myself, I should write that down. But, I find myself think there might be a better way to do this. I would use the loaner lists. I can't tell you how many times I've lent out books only to forget who has them.
Overall, an interesting journal. I will use it and I think it would make an excellent gift for teens or even adults who love to read. I just think it could be trimmed down a little and maybe the journal pages could be reformatted somehow.
