On the front is a picture of every novel-length book I read that was published in 2011.
On the back is a picture of every picture book I read that was published in 2011.
On the inside are pictures of all the books that wouldn't fit on the front or back covers:
Inside this sacred folder are lists. TONS and TONS of lists of books. Lists like YALSA's Best Fiction for Young Adults, starred reviews from every publishing company, best books of the year from every journal. I am obsessed with lists. The walls of my office at the library are completely covered in them. The sacred journal is a way of keeping some of these all-important lists organized.
Even though I still have a few more 2011 books on my to-read lists, I've decided that it's due time to retire the 2011 Sacred Folder and get started on one for 2012. It is, after all, mid-March.
So, I will remove all the eternally needed lists (Newberry, Caldecott, Printz, Morris, etc.) to my brand spanking new 2012 Sacred Folder.
