I have a book that has an accompanying journal.  It's not a blank journal, but one of those where it has questions to prompt you and have you write your thoughts and observations.  I know blank journals and 'non-books' are no-nos, but would this fall into that category or not?  It's not blank, but I don't know if it's really a book either.  Thanks for any help!

So, Ashley, is it like a workbook?  Because workbooks are allowed.........

Yes, I was going to say it's kind of like workbook.  It corresponds with the chapters of the book and has questions to help you reflect on what you read.  I guess that probably makes it a workbook...?  I just wanted to be sure before I decided to post it.

I think even a blank journal would be allowed as 'part of' a book set or kit - the requirement on books that come 'with' things is that all the 'things' be still there. It would be different if it were just the book you are asking about - or is that what you are asking? just the journal? I still think it would be okay, since it is, as you say, more of a workbook.

Well, the book and the journal are purchased separately, and I guess the thing that made me question it is technicalities.  It says 'Journal' on the front cover, but it seems more like a workbook because of the questions in it.  I guess I'll probably end up offering them as a package deal anyway.  Thanks for helping clarify!
