Book of Us: A Journal of Your Love Story in 150 Questions

This attractively designed, user-friendly, and elegant volume invites readers to record the stories and moments of the romance of a lifetime through 100 simple, yet poignant, prompts.For the diehard romantic, there may be nothing so thrilling as chronicling that one true love. The Book of Us presents 150 topics on the subject–ranging from “Before I met you, my love life was…” to “One of the reasons I think we lasted so long as a couple is that…” Like David Marshall’s earlier book, The Book of Myself, which is also a keepsake, this book makes us wish it were prettier. But it is the thought that counts, and a lot of thought will go into turning these empty pages into something a spouse, one’s children, and then their children will cherish. And not to fear: While this is a very sweet book, there is also plenty of room here to ruminate on the less saccharine aspects of life partnership: financial crises, humorous escapades, parenting woes, and home-improvement projects. A word to gay readers: One of the book’s five sections focuses on “Tying the Knot”; some of the questions specifically address elements such as the bachelor party and the wedding dress, but most of the questions are generic enough to apply to any type of commitment ceremony. –Jane Steinberg

    I have several friends getting married this Spring so I’ve been looking for inexpensive yet nice, thoughtful gifts. This book really fits the bill. I’m buying one for all the showers I’m going to. It’s a wonderful way to show your support for the couple’s future together. It’s a lovely, touching book that shows you care.

    I bought this book as a birthday gift for my fiance. We have been together over 2 years and are getting married in about 100 days.
    I thought that this book would be very sweet if I filled out everything up to the wedding/marriage part. However, I think that this book might be a bit hokey if just bought and given to someone blank. However, if you’re willing to start filling it out, it gives your companion an interesting way to look at memories and will encourage him/her to fill it out further.
    I would not suggest getting this book if you are only dating or if you are newly dating: it defines and confines your relationship too much. But this is a great book if you are a couple who are not always together. My fiance lives in England, and we often enjoy sharing memories of our courtship, our vacations, etc. This is a perfect way for your partner to hear your voice and cherish memories when he/she is alone, or when you are unavailable.
    A good gift for someone/a couple who is romantic, nostalgic, and interested in a little project or creativity.

    A beautiful record of their time together., November 1, 1999
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Book of Us: A Journal of Your Love Story in 150 Questions (Hardcover)
    My friend’s husband died 6 months ago. This book has been her grief companion, as she puts on paper the many memories they had created together. It means a lot to her to have this record of their love. In moments when she misses him, she reads some of the stories she’s recorded and feels him close again.
