EDD Question to everyone!

I would like my freshmen to have a reader/writer’s notebook next year, but I haven’t figured out how I want to set it up. I like Kelly Gallagher’s idea for a writer’s notebook, but I also want students to take notes while reading their independent reading books (books not for class, but outside reading) AND in-class books. I know this is A LOT, which is why I’d love your suggestions. Here’s my question:

In the world of reader’s and writer’s notebooks, what has worked for you?
