Types of Journals

I know this is not reading or book-related. But normally when people read, they journal too. I have been doing a reading journal. I also do a little of each of these. I do not do everything daily. But I mix and match in mine. I just wanted to provide anyone wanting to journal with some great ideas of pages to do.
