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!

"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.
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)
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
From well-known awards lists such as Pulitzer and Man Book Prize winners, to lesser known awards such as Indies Choice and Dublin Award winners, Read, Remember, Recommend gives readers almost 150 pages of award winners and books that have made various "notable" lists - something for everyone. To the right of each listed book, the author has given the reader space to catalog books owned, recommended, to-be-read, and to-be-purchased.
Read, Remember, Recommend allows the reader to be insanely organized. The remaining pages of the journal are devoted to your to-read, recommendations, loaned books, and journal pages to record the books you read along with dates and page numbers. My only gripe is that there are not enough actual journal pages for the prolific reader. What is given in the book is really just a beginning point for journaling: 47 places for books to be read, 97 places to list books read with dates and page numbers, 67 places to "journal" about books read, 48 places to list books you recommend to others, 32 places to list books loaned and 32 places to list borrowed books - it may sound like a lot, but you could fill these pretty quickly if you're a serious reader.
One of the best features of Read, Remember, Recommend is the "References and Resources" section in the back of the book.Read more ›
The To Read section is far briefer, with room to list 50 books that one is interested in getting one's hands on, and with the checkboxes Own, Recommend, To Read, Want. "To Read" would seem to be an otiose checkbox, but maybe you could check it off after you're read the book to indicate that it's no longer among the to be read.
The Journal Pages section ought to be the meat of the book, one would think, but it weighs in at only about 60 pages and it's stuck in the middle. The section offers four pages for simply listing read books by title and date finished. The rest of the section includes pages on which one can write more detailed information about the book--passages to remember, comments and thoughts, etc.Read more ›
I have already taken my version along to my local book store to refer to when I was perusing the shelves and discovered that I walked out with a few books that have been on my "list" forever, but are always forgotten once I step into the bookstore.
I am planning on using this as my go-to gift for graduation season...which is quickly approaching. Spreading the joy of reading and our collective knowledge of literature will make our overgrowing world seem a bit more familiar and local.
For me, I like that the book is not some huge binder that would be difficult to throw in my purse. Perfect size.
If you have not picked this book up yet, you should. It is going to spread like wildfire!
More to come....heck ya! Brilliant idea.

The spiral part is pushed aside. It is ok for a beginning, however, feel it would be better to be able to add pages. I do like it for a guide to make my own.Published on March 16, 2013 by Deanna McLearn
