All the members of the book club can have a unique reading journal to track books. I’m all for antique book designs, it really makes me love books even more.

So I wouldn’t hesitate to grab this reading log that comes with a hundred pages.

You can track the name of the book, author, publishing date, page count and write a long review about the plot and characters.

And what makes this reading log stand out from others is “the table of content”. It’s the best way to get a quick look at your reads. If you’re hesitant to just gift only a reading log, grab this natural bamboo pen along with it. These two are definitely a bookworm’s dream.

You can definitely get this item to gift as a book club of the month gift.

Probably adding a vintage frame like this one can take this to a whole new level. 


Women Book Club Bookmarks

Bookworms can never have enough bookmarks.

So who wouldn’t love this elegant gold weather bookmark with a cute cat pendant? As far as I know, people who read a lot, adore cats! So this bookmark is definitely a win-win.

Also, I love how both the bookmark and cat chain pendant are more than 10cm long, so it’s easier to use. I hate those bookmarks when they are short and clumsy.
