So, my big idea is to do a travelling journal specifical geared to people that are into books.  The idea would be that each person gets a two page spread in the journal, and two weeks.  In that time, in those pages, you'd journal about a book.  It could be the book you're reading when the journal gets to you, or it could be your favorite book, it just has to be a book you want to write or draw or illustrate or doodle about.  You could do a review, or postulate on what's going on in the plot (trying to keep semi-spoiler free) or just write about what you feel when you finish the book.  If you're an artist, you could do character portraits, or capture the main setting for the book.  If you want to employ a little "creative destruction" - go for it.  The idea is just to share a journal with other people that like books.  Then when it's all done, the journal would come back to me, and I'd put up pictures of all the pages people have done.

I know there's a few travelling journal sites out there like 1000 Journals or it's counterpart 1001 Journals or even Book Mooch's new Book Mooch Journal Project but I haven't seen anything like this.

If you're interested, let me know.  I already have interest from some other places, and have started up a site - http://www.scattereddelusions.com/books for people to sign-up if their interested.  I purchased the journal this afternoon and will have it ready to go out next week.  I wanted to put something up here, because I'm positive there's more people into this idea!
