The Journal CEO Magazine – 1st Issue

3/5 stars

I had been wanting to read this magazine since shortly after it was published for Kindle, but I held out waiting for a sale- it was finally lowered about ~$10.00USD in price and it currently is still sitting at $1.99 if you want to check it out as well.

The Journal CEO Magazine is a quick read based on non-art journaling, which is the type of journaling I’ve been doing off and on my entire life, but regularly since 2009. This magazine has a lot of fun things to offer like pictures you can print out to put in your journal, recommendations of products and apps, and long lists of prompts and types of journals you can keep.

The problem with this magazine is that it’s very repetitive and has a number of editing errors. I would also have liked it more if the writer had told us what secret writing with a lemon and a lamp was without me having to Google it after reading about it.

Writing Life Stories

3/5 stars

I picked this book up from my local library hoping it would help me with my personal journals. It wasn’t exactly what I was looking for* but it is still a good book. It’s very informative as far as actual information about memoirs and helpful with suggestions and exercises. I saved a lot of the exercises listed in this book to go through at a later time.

* if you have a suggestion for a book I should check out please leave me a message.
