All in all I'd have to say it's a good little reading log book but it's definitely not the greatest one I've ever seen. I would however recommend it to anyone looking for a reading journal.

Please read my full review here:
https://thereadingmermaidsreviews.weebly.com/book-reviews/read-harder-a-reading-...

StayCurious Have you tried using an app to log your books? Or do you keep a different type of journal? You read so much I'm just wondering how you keep track 😃 3w
TheReadingMermaid @StayCurious I actually have two different ways of tracking my books. The first one is a reading journal such as this. It helps me keep track of notes in order to help me write my reviews as well as publishing info. The other way is with a full size planner/ledger in which I use to schedule my books every month. I schedule both ebooks and paper books in that ledger. 3w

The game begins on September 1st!

How the game is played:
Every member of the group can suggest a letter. In order to suggest a letter you must have read a book within the month of September that begins with the letter you are guessing. For example: In order to guess the letter H you must have read The Hobbit.

This game will announce our buddy read for the month of October. 🎃
