As we approach the end of December, it is time to think about journalling for the new years it time to start a journal or to start a new type of journal. Plus, there is the opportunity to add some journal writing books or notebooks to your Christmas wish list. I know I will be adding a mix of journalling and personal development books to my list, the difficult bit is choosing the ones to add.
So here are my book suggestions for journal writers (and a few notebooks because I couldn’t resist)*. If you are also interested in personal development books I have a list I’m interested in reading (and you can even help me choose which one to read next by responding to the poll).
