There is a icon for "book journaler". I've searched and can't find what it refers to.

Book Journal is a feature that is no longer available for purchase in the kiosk.  It was discontinued sometime last year, I don't remember exactly when.  I still have the icon because I purchased it before it was discontinued.  I'm not familiar with all of the features of Book Journal, I just use it to keep a list of the books I'm using as reveals in games in the Games Forum.

Actually I think if you click on a users book journal icon it gives you the option to try it and then buy it-that was how I got mine. I like it, it's pretty useful for sorting which books are stored where.

LOL, Jean that has to be better than the colored index  card system I've been using.

I use the booklists here, but I have an online journal on another site where I do short reviews of the books I read.  Sometimes I'll write longer ones and post them here, though.

I followed Rocky1's advice and was able to get a trial version of the book journal, it also has a link to buying a years worth.

So glad it worked for you! Not sure if that is a little glitch PBS never bothered to fix or change, but it was nice to try it before I purchased anything.
