You have a passion for books, but your reading life could use a little organization.
I’ve got good news for you: It’s perfectly possible (and quite fun!) to keep track of all the bookish parts of your life…
…you just need the right tool to do it!
Perhaps this sounds like you?
>> There are SO MANY books you want to read, but you need a more elegant way to keep track of your TBR. (Scribbling titles on random scraps of paper isn’t cutting it.)
>> Your local library is your happy place, but you keep wracking up pesky overdue fines. When you’ve got half a dozen books going at once, it’s hard to remember what goes back when!
>> When you read, you frequently stumble on “gold nugget” quotes you want to keep and remember…but you never do, because you simply don’t have anywhere to save them.
>> You love loaning out your books to kindred spirits…but some of your favourites are permanently missing because you just can’t remember who borrowed it.
What if there was a way to keep all your reading notes, TBRs, book club plans, library info, and checklists all in one place?
The Book Lover’s Companion is a complete resource for all the bookish things you want to keep on paper.
When you buy The Book Lover’s Companion, you get TWO sizes with your purchase (8.5×11″ and 5.5×8.5″) PLUS 2 cover options.

How do I print out The Book Lover’s Companion and put it all together?
The book includes instructions for printing and putting everything together.
The Book Lover’s Companion is designed for double-sided printing, and contains approximately one year’s worth of journaling space. (And you can always go back and re-print different sections if you need more pages!). After printing, you can bind it by getting it coil-bound at an office supply store for just a few dollars. For more flexibility, you can hole-punch the pages and put it in a 3-ring binder, or punch and bind the pages using the discbound system.
I’ve created a detailed and carefully-researched Resources page that includes recommendations for binders, hole punches, paper, and journal accessories: https://teaandinksociety.com/resources
