A Blast from the Past!

A Blast from the Past! is an opportunity to take a trip down memory lane without having to leave the comfort of your Lazy Boy! Take a few minutes to go back in time. Think of something or someone that was once so familiar, yet over the years has become outdated or simply pushed aside for something new but not necessarily improved. It could be a family member, cartoon character, movie, TV show, gadget, car, household item, event, activity….

Jot down your Blast and the memories it holds for you. Be creative. Pictures and sketches are welcomed! Of course, one person’s past may be someone else’s antiquity, so it will be interesting to compare what different generations consider a Blast.

The rules are simple. Keep it G/PG rated. Don’t change someone else’s entry. Include your BM ID, country, and date with your entry. Keep it only 2 weeks then put back in your inventory for mooching. When it’s full, contact mmb(NJ) and I’ll mooch it back from you.

This journal was kept by a moocher in March 2009, who has been away from Bookmooch for almost two years and her email address has bounced. 







Memorials of Life

This book is very special to me. Sometimes in one’s life something happens that leaves a lasting scar upon your soul. For me, it was 9/11. The tragedy of that day will forever haunt me, And the loss of our friend Colleen L. Fraser, in flight 93, Was almost too much to bear.

There are other experiences people have in their lives that also leave that deep scar within them. The death of John. F. Kennedy, Hurricane Wilma, The Indonesia earthquake, 3 mile Island, and more.

I dedicate this journal to all of our friends here on BOOKMOOCH. Share with your bookmooch friends what experience has left that lasting scar, And tell them how it has effected you in your everyday life. Then, try to share how that has helped you to see life differently now, and how you can move on.

All I ask is not to change anyone’s work, 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)


Bittersweet Symphony of Life

A Journal for those memories in life that are bittersweet: So painful to remember but too sweet to forget. Please contact RhapsodyVF when the Journal is full and I will mooch it back!


Music from One Moment

Everyone has a song that evokes a particular moment from their past. This is a BookMooch Journal about those songs and what they mean to you. Draw, write, represent your songs and memories however you like. Feel free to use multiple songs and pages. After 2 weeks, please re-list the journal for someone else to mooch and contribute to. When the book is full, or close to it, contact me (blueclaire) and we can arrange its return to me. This isn’t a large book so it shouldn’t be too expensive to post 🙂

This is my first BM Journal and I really love the idea!

Childhood Memories of Life

What are your first memories of life? Perhaps your mommy gave you a kiss for your ouwie. Did you cut off your pigtail? Hiding under your bed from the monster in your closet? Camping out and seeing a big raccoon? Share your childhood memories of life with your Bookmooch friends. 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).


Bear Riding on a Train: Your Childhood Journey

My theme is: Your childhood journey (Bear Riding on a Train). Our childhood can seem so long when we are kids, but it goes by so fast.

What was your favorite childhood food? What did the house you grow up in look like? Do you have a story from your childhood that most of your friends roll their eyes and say, “No that story again!”. Draw the lay out of your house, what did your room look like when you were 12? What lunch did your mom pack every day? What was your favorite Halloween? Remember when you go the dog you always wanted? Did you move away from all your friends and you never forgot your last day with your best friend? Draw, write, remember but most of all tell me about your childhood journey.

Please let what you write be something my children & I can read together!

Create your artistic journal entry- relist on bookmooch and pass it on.(hopefully to someone with good feedback! 😉 The last entrant will then mail it back to the owner Ashley (USA: GA) user id: faith4jesus.
