I think some people use it to record their books read ect. Some to keep track of all the books they have ie: keepers, bookshelf, tbr. I haven't checked it out yet so I'm not even sure what the format is. LOL

Thanks for supporting the site tho! I think PBS has so much to offer for so little it's hard to keep up with all the benefits!

These are the 4 questions I ask myself...

  • What's the main plot of this book?
  • Who are the main characters?
  • What did I think of this book?
  • Would I read this book again?

I just started using this like 3 days ago so I may change those or add some more but I thought that should be the basic ones at least...

When I had it I used it to journal my murder mysteries.  So my 2 main questions were "who done it?" and "why?"   I sometimes would forget who the guitly were in a book and would have to reread to find out, so the journal helped with that.  I need to get it again, but I'm a bit broke at the moment.
