I never thought I would be the type of person who loved writing in books. I keep my books in the best condition I can…I never fold down pages or remove jacket covers…my dad would make fun of me, saying I should “live in the books” like he did (his were always filled with food crumbs and had water damage from reading in the tub), but I couldn’t do it.
But it wasn’t until I tried actually doodling and journaling in a book that I found that I actually loved it. It’s a great way to keep your brain active and is sure to be a fun memento for my kids and grandkids to find!
