Rob gave this book a great review on the 1001 Books to Read Before I Die group. (I hope you don't mind if I quote you here, Rob. But this sounds like such a great book...) To quote Rob:

"Here is my review of:

"Read, Remember, and Recommend", A Reading Journal for Book Lovers, Created by Rachelle Rogers Knight.

I think this is a great idea and a fun and useful reading journal and more! And to tell you the truth (dare I?)...I think anyone would do a lot better using this journal (which includes many

I was so excited to get this book in the mail to review. It's an amazing journal and resource book full of all sorts of great information. There are 6 great quote filled indexes titled Awards & Notable Lists, To Read, Journal Pages, Recommendations, Loaner Lists, and Resources.

You can keep track of every book you've ever read, want to read, and books other people have recommended to you, as well as see the list of notable awards your favorite books have received. Among these great features t

This is a brilliant book for book lovers—-how smart of Rachelle to come up with this organizing and fun journal! Its spiral-bound format with tabs renders this book practical and easy to use. There are six tabs indicating six sections: Awards and Notable Lists, To Read, Journal Pages, Recommendations, Loaner Lists, and Resources.

In the introduction, Rachelle explains how to make the best use of this book. The first half is made up checklists of books that have won awards and were nominated on no

So, after seeing this book on so many blogs, I very much wanted my own copy of this book. Luckily for me, I won this one through a giveaway on Rachelle's website, Bibliobabe, and as soon as this book arrived home, I have been hooked to it. It is one amazing journal, and I'm sure every book lover will be glad to have it in his or her collection.

Read, Remember, Recommend is primarily a reader's journal. It is divided into six sections. The delight of this journal is the Awards list. I had so much

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 ...more

Read, Remember, Recommend by Rachelle Rogers Knight is an excellent organizing journal for passionate readers, but maybe not for book bloggers. As an avid reader with a to-read list in the hundreds, there are not enough pages in this book to house all of my reading wants and needs. An online version of this book may have been a better product, allowing readers to continuously add pages to their loaner and recommendation lists. . . but then wouldn't we call it Good Reads or LibraryThing?

Have you had a chance to check out this book at your local book store? It's GREAT, and would be a welcome addition to any book lovers collection.

Some of the great features are:

* Tabbed section dividers; spiral bound
* Lists of books, by year for a variety of literary awards: Pulitzer, Orange Prize, Man Booker, National Book Awards and many more
* Tracking space for award books you own, recommend, want to read etc.
* Personal space to record books you'd like to read or acquire.
* Listing of some

This guide-slash-journal to middle grade and young adult literature is an admirable compilation of recommendations and reader interaction. Writing a guidebook for a field that literally changes by the day is no easy feat, and while I had some issues with some parts of the journal, I still commend Rachelle for taking on this monumental task, and would recommend RRR as a great gift to give a bookworm.


The first half of the journal contains hundreds, if not thousands, of different lists of reco

I have a confession to make: despite the fact that I live, breathe, eat, and even dream about books, I have never owned a reading journal. It wasn't until two years ago when I started book blogging that I even thought about reviewing the wonderful (and not so wonderful) books that I had read. Up until now, when I went to write a review I sat at my computer with the book currently being reviewed in front of me, hoping for inspiration on how to convey my thoughts beyond "I liked it", or "I didn't ...more

Have you ever found yourself sitting around, trying to think of something to do? I'm always one to recommend a good book, but what if you don't know what to read? Want to try something new, but don't know where to look? READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND FOR TEENS by Rachelle Rogers Knight is a great resource for really anyone looking for a new YA novel to try.

The resource list is split into categories by awards, state awards, and then interesting genres. There are a few sections of "alike" books (Eragon
