I like the thought better than the book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book (Diary)
I heard about this book in a magazine and LOVED the thought of it. How perfect to write down a few sentences at the end of each day and when the book is through you have 5 years worth. Pretty cool! The book itself is nice-it's a nice cover, good material used and nice binding and pages. The lines are small-the book itself is smaller than a paperback (or very close to that size) and they could have made it just a bit bigger to give you more room. If I write very small I can fit in about 3-4 sentences. But it is tight. The one complaint I really have is that instead of going in calendar order, it goes in day order. So on June 1st, you have 5 spaces for 5 years. I'd rather have 5 spaces starting January 1-5, the next page Jan 6-10, etc. so that at the end of 5 years if I wanted to look back I could read it like a novel. Instead I'd have to read the book 5x to get to all the entries. Otherwise though the book is a good idea. Keep in mind you could easily do this yourself and save 10 bucks if you used a nice notebook.

I bought another 5 year diary and I agree with attiesgirl05. You could buy any journal that appeals to you and simply write 3 lines on each page for each year. Great idea. I disagree that I would like to read each year through. I want to see where I was and what I was doing on the exact same day each year so this set up is perfect for me.

What you have described is simply a journal. The layout of this book - a page per date with five years worth on one page - is the whole point!! This is to allow you to glance and see where you were a year ago, two years ago, etc, on that same date. After using it for a couple years, do you see the fun in it?
