I joined another challenge!!!

I have notebooks all over my house where I write down ideas, words, plans, blog ideas, books to read, and etc. I kept thinking that I needed to obtain a notebook or "journal" dedicated just to my reading and to my blog (because basically my blog is nothing but my electronic journal). Nevertheless I was browsing looking at the group, "50 Books A Year" page. As I was going through the group discussions, I came across a topic called, "Reading Journals". There is a blogger named "Sea" and she was talking about a book journal she just purchased. I do not know if I am going to purchase one of the personalize "reading journals", but I do have some pretty journals that have different sections in them and for a bonus, the covers are in my two favorite colors (red and black). Along with blogging about obtaining and writing in a reading journal, she also did a post about challenges she started. Guess which one I decided to do?????
Here is the information regarding the challenge:

Goal: To keep a journal that lists your monthly book purchases and reads.
Timeline: This challenge will be running from March 2010 through February 2011
Guidelines: Participants will keep a journal, which is to include the minimum information:
Books bought and books read in each month.
Since my journal has three sections, I am going to do the following:
SECTION 1: Day to day account of my readings
Book Purchases for the month
Blogging Ideas
SECTION 2:Notes on the books I am currently reading so I can give better reviews
SECTION 3: Books to check out and see if I am interested in reading them.
Book quotes I like
Random items.
Probably in May I will post a picture of the journal and tell you guys how it is coming along.
