Editorial Reviews


Book Description This journal leads you on a personal journey through the best loved and most highly acclaimed fiction and literature of all times. This 236-page spiral bound journal encourages you to read and interact with the greatest and most intriguing books and establish intimate relationships with your favorite writers and fellow book lovers.

  • Discover literary prize winners from 1919 to now.
  • Peruse several "Best Book" lists, all with columns to indicate books read, to read and books to buy.
  • Jot down notes about your favorite writers.
  • Create your very own personal "To Read" list.
  • Keep a detailed record of what you've read.
  • Journal your thoughts, feelings, and insights about each book.
  • Record a list of books you would recommend and readers you would recommend them to.
  • Track books you have borrowed and loaned.

By engaging more intimately with the books you read and share with others, you become as closely bound to the pages as the pages are bound to one another. Read, Remember, Recommend enhances the reading experience and makes each book you encounter an integral part of who you are. Book journals have come and gone from the shelves at The King s English for years, but I've never run across one as perfectly conceived and executed as Rachelle Knight s. She has put together enough lists to keep an obsessed reader going for years, enough pages to jot down everything from notes on particular books to recommended titles to author lists to books loaned out (and to whom they ve been loaned, of course). She s included not only every important literary award list but all the finalists for each year as well, along with other notable lists from The Modern Library s to the BBC s to Oprah s. And in the final section she s even provided websites for each! No reader should be without a copy of Read, Remember, Recommend. I m giving one to everyone I know. --Betsy Burton, Owner and Author, The King s English Bookshop, Salt Lake City, Utah.

One reason I started BOOKGASM was to keep a record of everything I read, because when you consume more than 100 books a year, one can no longer rely on memory alone. But if I didn't have BOOKGASM, I would utilize something like READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND, created by Rachelle Rogers Knight. This spiral-bound reading journal would make a perfect gift for any hardcore bibliophile on your list, with nearly 250 pages of section to help keep reading material straight, separated with handy, full-color, recipe-tabbed section breaks. There s a section to write down books you ve read, with space for passages to remember and other comments/thoughts. What to read next? Consult your to read list or author pages. Loaning out a book? Don t forget to record it in the loaner lists so you ll know who has it and for how long. The thing that makes READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND stand out from the dime-a-dozen reading journals at Barnes & Noble is its enormous amount of checklist up front of award winners and best-ofs; the Pulitzers, National Book Awards, Oprah s Book Club selections, Time magazine s most influential novels they re all there, and that s just scratching the surface. (As you look year by year, it s amazing how many times Joyce Carol Oates as placed as a Pulitzer runner-up ... and sad that she s never won.) Rod Lott --Lott, R. (2007, December). Read, Remember, Recommend. Bookgasm: Reading Material to Get Excited About.

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. --Holstine, L. (2007, December). Read, Remember, Recommend. Lesa s Book Critiques.

About the Author

I am a stay-at-home mama of two beautiful boys, Sam and Holden. I love to read and would give up any kind of shopping - as long as I could still buy books! I love to chat about books, find out what other people are reading and of course share my own loved treasures. I jot down book titles and authors whenever I run across a good suggestion; the newspaper, in other books, from friends, fellow book club members and online. In my busy life I found these great ideas were getting away from me; they were written on tiny pieces of paper floating in my giant purse, buried in emails from friends, written on magazine order slips on my nightstand - all out of reach when I wanted to give a suggestion or better yet, buy one! I needed a place to house all things book related. The Read, Remember, Recommend reading journal was born. It is my hope that through my passion I have created a product that will get others as excited about books and into reading great literature.

By Thomas P. Kimbis on February 23, 2008
Format: Spiral-bound
This is a fantastic book - more of a reading companion - by Rachelle Knight (goodreads author too!). It's essentially a journal to keep track of your books, a real life version of goodreads, but with much more to it. It's loaded with lists, like National Book Award winners (which is great since I have a collection for my daughters of signed first edition NBA winners growing), Pulitzer, Man Booker, etc.... And it allows you to check off whether you've read them or not, want to read, etc and gives you space for handwritten notes on each one.

My two favorite features so far are the "Biblio Pages", which allow you to keep all your notes on a book in one place (including words to look up later (yes, we ALL still run into those), favorite passages/quotes, and any comments or notes; my second favorite is the "Loaner Lists" where you can keep track of all the books you've borrowed or lent out.

For those of us who have too much going on to remember all this sort of stuff, I highly recommend this book. Although certainly good for mature readers, I also think it could be very useful for a junior high / high schooler who is starting to seriously enjoy reading literature --it helps to jot down thoughts while reading and do so in an organized way. Those class papers will be a lot easier a few weeks from now ....

I was looking for a book journal and this one is WAY too big and complicated. It's the size and weight of 300 page paperback (not the mass market size, either -- the big ones). The lists of books are cool enough but I can find that info online, there's no room to add future winners, and I didn't need to be carrying this info around. I returned this one and got a much smaller, simpler journal that's more portable and more practical for my needs.

I purchased this for my niece as she has become enamored of reading and purchasing books of her own. It has lists of award winners to help with her selections, plus, there is plenty of room to write her own discoveries. I loved it so much I bought myself one, and it is invaluable for exploring my local used book stores and Amazon. GREAT PURCHASE!

A wonderful journal! There's an Awards List, which lists the books and the awards they have received. The Author Pages is where you can jot down your favorite authors and books they have written. The To Read section, where you note the books you want to read. There is even a Loaner List section, where you can write down books you have loaned out as well as books you have borrowed. There are columns in between the lists where you can check off which books you own, want to own, have read and recommend. In between journal sections are fun book quotes.

This journal makes a great Holiday gift for any book lover on your list! It's the perfect size as well, about the size of a planner. This is a great way to keep track of your books and to find new books to read.
