Volume 12 Done!!

I got done with this one last night! It seemed to have more pages than I expected. I bought this one when I flew over to the US last year. I flew 4000+ miles and top of my shopping list was a $6 notebook from Barnes & Noble.

This one seemed to be mainly about the books I was reading.

This ran from 14th May 2014 to 13th October 2014.

A shopping trip.

Our internet broke for a week when it should have been upgraded. I read a lot that week.

A local second hand book shop was clearing some stock and selling paperbacks at half price. I got a bit overexcited about the classic sci-fi that ended up being 50p per book.

More about books.

My ink testing page. The paper in this was pretty good for fountain pens inks.

You have nice handwriting-I never learned how to write long hand-I like the neatness of your journal pages-not cluttered with stuff. Clean and simple is way I like a journal to look. Keep writing and reading books-peace

Re: journal
Thanks! I like a simple layout to my journalling.

Oh, second hand bookshops selling classic sci-fi, always love! <333

And also, I love your date stamp! That's a great idea :)

I seriously got so excited when I saw the sign in the window!! I knew their section was good.

The date stamp was just from an office supply store. The last year on it is 2016 so I'll need to find a new one soon.

I love that you journal like I do! Lots of large blocks of text and a few things taped in here and there. Your handwriting is beautiful and the stamp adds character :)

Thanks! I love seeing colourful journals posted but I just don't feel like there are too many others of us who keep it simple. I like having the date in a different style to my entries, it creates a nice division between days.

I've used the pink version of that one before! I really liked it.

You have lovely handwriting! I can't print worth a damn.

Thanks! My handwriting is a strange mix of print and cursive sometimes.

I think your pink journal version was one of the reasons why I wanted one!

Well I'm glad you were inspired!

I need to journal more about the books I'm reading! If nothing else it will make it easier for me to rate & review them on GoodReads when I'm finished. Unrelated, I more than anything want to peel that Deathly Hallows sticker off your notebook and stick it on mine.
