While there may be other products like this, this is more than just a bucket list of books. These books are iconic and essential for any lover of books. The level of interaction and entertainment you can find with this goes further than just the typical “read, scratch, and reveal” that so many others have. With Been There Done That’s version you can also play the role of the reviewer and rate your reads with an assortment of stickers. On top of that, with the size of this one you can display your achievement of book reading to your guests—the ideal conversation-starter for a bookish get-together.
