Real Life Journals has a small booklet inside the front cover called "Choose Your Own Bookbinding Adventure", the purpose of which is to lead you to the binding form that will best suit your purposes in making your journal. Occasionally this little booklet gets lost, especially in library copies of the book. In response to several readers' requests, I am publishing here the complete booklet. You could print out the pages, fold them in half, and sew or staple them together to make a replacement booklet; or just use it on- line, scrolling down to the appropriate next page as directed.
(Please disregard the little pink post-its. The one copy of the booklet that I could find was my master copy, and I needed to keep the post-its in place. )
