Book Description

6 Sep 2011

From author of Wreck this Journal, Keri Smith's Finish this Book is a creative adventure where the reader is the main character - and the author.

Dear Reader,

One dark and stormy night, I found some strange scattered pages abandoned in a park... I collected and assembled them, trying to solve the mystery of this unexpected discovery, and I am now passing the task on to you.

Your mission is to become the new author of this work. You will continue the research and provide the content. In order to complete the task, you will have to undergo some secret intelligence training, which I have included in this volume. Since no one knows what lies ahead, please proceed with caution, but know...

This book does not exist without you.

Yours truly,

Keri Smith

5.0 out of 5 stars Finish This Book 21 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
If you're creative, or want to feel like a child again, then this book/creative journal is for you.

With this book, you become a detective and it encourages you to observe the world in a different way. Take it all in rather than look past it. You have to start from the beginning, and don't skip ahead, and sit down with your favourite pens and beverage, then start detecting. You observe, document, draw, create and most importantly, have fun with it.

There are codes to be broken and created, people to watch and suspicion looking items to figure out.

So go, be a detective and unlock your inner child with some creativity!
