Book diaries follow the life of a book whilst out on loan. The idea is that a borrower who borrows a book from a library would record the activities in this diary related to a specific book, even if the book gets passed on to another person, who would need to continue the diary. The aim is to capture contextual information on when, how, why, and who uses the book - so the diary should be kept alongside the book as much as possible. The ideal time for this would be on 2 day to 2 week loans, and the diaries should be returned by 19 of December, 2011.
Everybody who keeps and returns a book diary will be entered into a draw for an Amazon Kindle e-reader or the same value in book tokens. As an additional prize, 5 £30 Amazon voucher will also be drawn out among participants.
