I found this on a wish list and liked it soooooo much I bought a few. It isn't fancy but it dose give you a place to write down the title a favorite quote, or just any note about the book. I only wish I had found it sooner....Interoduction  by Nancy Pearl and she gives you her top 100 list. She also gives you the rule of 50 or not finishing a book you began. That is for those who can't stop reading a book they don't like.  I really think this is a hidden Gem.....

My reading journal is falling apart, so thanks for the tip. Did you read Book Lust?

For all you other bibliophiles who enjoy reading about books as much as you love reading, I highly recommend "The Book That Changed My LIfe: 71 Remarkable Writers Celebrate the Books That Matter Most to Them"

Sorry if I highjacked your post.

I have a reading journal I purchased on www.uncommongoods.com. It is a really gorgeous hardcover with a cloth binding, heavy paper, a couple hundred pages for entries. You can put one book on a page and they actually give you prompts to help you write out your feelings about the book.

Unfortunately a quick search of the site looks like they don't carry it anymore.
