  1. Thanks for sharing my 25 Reading Challenges to Unleash Your Inner Bookworm post! I love bullet journaling checking out other people’s planners so I liked Pretty Prints and Paper Using a Bullet Journal for Work. Even though I don’t work outside the home anymore, I can still get useful tips for my bujo/planner hybrid.
