Eric Harris' Journal

Here are the complete contents of Eric Harris' infamous "journal": the sixteen pages of text he recorded in his notebook. He referred to it on The Basement Tapes as "The Book of God."

It was not a classic diary or journal about daily life, but focused on explaining Eric's reasons and plan for his mass murder. Eric wrote from April 10, 1998 to April 3, 1999. He dated each entry at the bottom.

Below the journal scans, I added one of Eric' most infamous rants, where he describes his desire to top Oklahoma City, Vietnam, etc., and then says, "i want to leave a lasting impression on the world." This is a rare instance of Eric typing one of his private rants. (He frequently typed school assignments.)

Eric's handwriting is a challenge, but Dr. Peter Langman has done an excellent transcription.
