Books Read 2011

This may not be my favorite layout, but I think it is a fun topic to document.  For the last three years, I have created a scrapbook page about the books that I read during the year.  Here is the layout that I created for 2011.
I used the March 2012 Studio Calico kit, Story Teller.  I love to read, I just don't get as much time as I would like to do it.  This year I actually read a lot more than usually because I started using public transportation for the last five months of the year.  I had a good hour and a half on a train every day and if I wasn't napping, I was reading a book or a magazine.
Here are my layouts for 2010 and 2009.

I'm not taking the train as much anymore, so I haven't even finished a book yet this year!  The one I am reading isn't great, so I'm having a hard time finishing it.  Any suggestions of good books that you read recently?
Have a great week!


  1. what a great idea, it's fun to look back on your version of the lo from previous years.

    Love the kraft on kraft in the first one.
    Cool shot in the last one. Great idea :)

  3. This is awesome!

  4. I love the idea of listing all the books you've read during the year. Your layout with the diamonds is fabulous.

  5. Great ideas for pages! Wonderful!

  6. Such a great thing to scrapbook! I have kept track of my books read for a few years, just need to make the pages! I loved Handle With Care by Jodi Piccoult.
