And other books are on this site, but they're not actually reading material, do diaries and journals belong on the site or should I list them on the deletion forums?

If they are completely blank, like those, they should be NOT A BOOK'd. (I got that one and its friends.)

If they have textual content (a quote on each page, etc.) then they are usually ok to stay.

Shadowjac | 24 comments Okay thank you, I'll be sure if I see blank books to add them to the deletion thread.

They don't need deletion; they need to be NAB'd: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/1...

These items should be transferred to the “author” NOT A BOOK. This can be done by editing the individual book record and replacing the existing primary author with the author NOT A BOOK, or, if all of the items on an author's list are not books, the author can be edited and merged entirely into NOT A BOOK.
