Questions and Tips from Readers

Catching up on more reader emails received over the last few months… From Jay: Do you have any idea if/where these are available? I miss them. Used to buy them at SupeRX, Osco, Hook’s Drugs, Ben Franklin… I haven’t seen these in stores as much lately either… but I found a website that seems to […]

Books in Diary or Journal Form

Michaela from Vienna emailed me with an excellent suggestion for a post: a listing of books written in journal form.

Sandra has a great review of the Squared Moleskine notebook: Life Imitates Doodles: Bleedthrumanade in Moleskine & Review of the Moleskine Squared Notebook.

New York Diaries

I’d heard about this book called New York Diaries: 1609 to 2009 and thought it sounded fabulous: for each day of the year, it gives an excerpt from the diary of a notable New York resident or visitor, including people such as Albert Camus, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Theodore Roosevelt, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Mark Twain, […]
