print: book reviews
Earlier in the week I mentioned feeling inadequate after looking at what other people have created. My thought process went something like this:
"Look at those great business cards! Why can't I ever come up with ideas like that?
They remind me of those adorable stamps, or those funny pads of paper! Why can't I ever come up with ideas like that?
Maybe I should work at coming up with an idea like that. Something sort of like that personal library kit.
What would it be like so that it was fun and cute and in the spirit of those things, while still being a Mollie idea?"
Yes, it really did work like that. I really don't want to be copying anyone, but I do want to be inspired by others. If you click through those links, you'll see that a lot of people use the multiple choice idea, and I like that. Their clever work inspired me to create my own.
What I made is a printable book review. (I swear, I only saw this one 30 seconds ago!) On it you can write the book you read, what you thought about it, and whether or not you would recommend it to someone else. Oh, and I haven't really read the book reviewed on the sample in the photo. Well, I'm reading it, but I'm not finished yet.
I also like that they double as a bookmark! You can keep it in your book as you are reading, and then it is right there for you to fill in when you are done. Or even as you are still reading!
They are a simple but fun little thing, and a small stack of them would make a nice addition to a literary gift. Hey...even kids could fill these out! (Or maybe kids need their own version with a more kid-friendly multiple choice? I'll work on that.)
