Review: I have been keeping a bullet journal for almost two years, I can't believe it's that long. So, when Ryder Carroll, the creator of bullet journalling, came out with his book this fall I thought I didn't need to read it. "I already got this down" I thought. Wrong.

It was really good for me to read this book, to rethink the way I am using my bullet journal, what new ideas I might try, and why I do it in the first place. I want to do more daily journalling instead of just using it for to-do lists and I also like the idea of goal setting--long and short term.

For me, I keep track of the books I read, the reading Challenges that I am participating in, my daily mood (color-coded, of course), and daily to dos.

A word of warning. Don't buy the e-book / Kindle version. It doesn't look good and you don't get a sense of the journal pages at all. The hard copy version, however, is great. It has good examples of Bullet Journal pages and how his method works. Here's the Bullet Journal website in case you're interested.
