Printables for Book Lovers and Readers add to the fun we all enjoy when reading. I appreciate the number of authors who joyfully read and recommend books written by their colleagues. In another side of my life, I have an Etsy store named Bar JD Printable Plaza. The Bar JD part reflects my other careers.
The Read and Review Journal package that I have created contains tools that help readers write reviews. And enjoy the writing! There are pages to help compose a review, keep track of the books in your library, create a wish list for future reading, extra pages for your writing, and a helpful guide to writing a review.
Printables let you have control over the production of your journal. Each of us is an individual. The journal publishers do a pretty good job of creating one-size-fits-all. But there are times when we want our individuality and need control over the pages we have to deal with.
When working with my personal journals, I run every page through the three-hole punch and keep them in a three-ring binder.
The Book Lovers Posters are PDF files formatted to print on 8.5-inch x 11-inch letter size paper. I prefer something with a little body, such as Bristol Paper. The finished poster will be 8 inches x 10 inches and suitable for framing. The download at Etsy contains 6 clear posters and 6 of the same design, but with formatted frame/matting. Colored paper or black and white printing will work very well. Or, you can take your favorite to your local printer for a creative canvas print.
I like to print one for the wall at my desk. I rotate them out and put the ‘old ones’ into a three-ring binder as separator pages.
Subscribers to Cardinal Bluff Reviews receive a free Poster. At this writing, the Read With Me the Whole Bloomin’ Summer is the free poster. That is subject to change.
