30 FUN AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO USE A BLANK NOTEBOOK

Hey booknerdigan,

I have a new and interesting article I want to share with you all on his fine Wednesday. It’s all about using all of those unused notebooks we all buy, collect and hoard, never to be used.

So here are a few new ideas you could try out:

I do some of these mentioned ideas, such as morning pages and I love it.

Do you do any of these with your note books?

The World’s Most Improbable Libraries

You know how everyone keeps saying that books are dead, that the written word isn’t going to exist in so many years. Well I’ve got something to say to all of you naysayers – go read this and tell me if the art of writing is dying.

http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-world%E2%80%99s-most-improbable-libraries/6483292

If you are like me and absolute love books, libraries and all bookshops around the world even though you always go to your favourite local book shop and hate it when you hear people say that bookshops are a dying breed, well take a few moments and read this interesting article that I found published by the ABC and was written by Alex McClintock.

Look at how some of the societies around the world are keeping books and words in business. How inspiring. I wish there were some cool libraries in Australia that I could visit.

Books aren’t a dying breed.
