Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails

“Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of.”

My younger son, Kieren, has always had a fascination with the sort of animals and insects that normally make people shudder, so I decided to gather pictures of slugs and snails and creepy crawlies into a book he had labeled Kieren’s Notebook.

Please remember that he likes these animals, so this is a place to appreciate their design and beauty, not recount horror stories!

Please try to relist the journal within two weeks of receipt, and do not alter any other moocher’s contribution. I will mooch it back whencompleted. Please let me know at tennantfamily (UK). I have the journal wishlisted to try to keep track of its progress.

Our Animal Companions: What ARE They Thinking?

I think the title speaks for itself. This is a new idea for a journal I’m trying out; it’s a 2008-2009 mini-planner.


Horsin’ Around

This is a bookmooch journal I started 7/1/08 that is about all things horses. Horses, ponies, unicorns, winged horses, barns – anything that has to do with a four-legged animal that whinnies is fair game! Pictures, drawings and text are all strongly encouraged! Get creative!

Please do not alter anyone else’s work! Also, please keep your time with this journal limited to 2 weeks (standard journaling). When you are finished with this journal, please post it back to this page so others may mooch it and contribute as well!

When this journal has finished its course, please send it back to me. Or reserve it for me and I will mooch it back from the last person.
Thank you and happy journaling!


This journal seems to have been lost in the mail in 2009.

Adopted Animals

This journal is dedicated to animals that have been adopted from an animal shelter or rescued off of the streets. Share your stories about a pet that you have adopted. Talk about how you met or how the furry friend has impacted your life. Pictures are strongly encouraged as well. Have fun with it, be creative, and show your love for animal adoption!

Please take no more than two weeks and return to flamingo6684 when it is full.

Cats do the Darnedest Things

Have a special moment to share of your pet doing something amazing, normal or just cute? Have a story you would like to share about some of the magic your cat or kitten exhibits? Have you drawn a picture of one of those moments or written a poem?

Share some of these magic cat moments with your friends at BM. International mooches welcome here 🙂 Please take no more than two weeks for your creative time and pass the journal on promptly.

When the journal is complete, please email: or message BM ID ArtsyAngel2007.

Have fun, create and share some of your pet’s special moments 🙂


This journal appears never to have been sent out due to the owner having a bad accident. Her account has been closed.

Animal-Human Connections

I know there are already BM Journals out there about animals/pets, but I’ve been wanting to make one for awhile, to ultimately reside back here with me. Basically this journal is about any and all animals that you’ve had in your life, whether they were actually pets, a neighbor’s pet that you played with, a horse that you rode at the nearby stables, or even a wounded bird you helped heal. Tell me the stories! Share the pictures! And please re-enter the book into the same entry when you are finished, so others can do the same. And, of course, please do not do anything to alter/cover/mark anyone else’s entries.

(Also a little heads-up, this journal has sorta thin pages, so it may be a good idea to strengthen your entry’s pages by covering them with construction paper or something.)

And of course, when this journal is full please return it to me (Heather19)


Animals of Life

This journal is dedicated to the animals of your life. Perhaps you had a favorite pet as a child. Did you raise a horse, or perhaps it was a hippopotamus? Did you feed a neighbor’s turkey, Or the neighborhood orangutan?

All I ask is to not to change anyone’s work, or write over it, or cover it up. Keep within the two week time limit, and then post it to have some one else mooch it. When this journal is full, please send it back to Debbie Hoggan (Bookmooch ID: hogganclan).


This journal had been incorrectly listed without the BMJournal tag and thus losing its identifying links. It is now back in circulation under the correct number.
