As I started to read, a couple of the pages came away from the spine! I wasn't bending the pages back - just enough so I could read the page, like any other book. The next minute, the whole cover came away and the pages just fell out!! The pages had been lightly glued to the paper outer cover quite badly.
Apart from the quality of the book, the ideas in it were quite good actually.
It gives you some great ideas for creating a journal, and not just about writing in it. It suggests you draw, doodle, print, stick things in, etc.
Its words are printed in a hand-written style which is nice to read and easy on the eye which makes it seem more personal to the reader.
If you're going to buy this book, whatever you do - do not pay full price for it in case you get a copy like mine!
The book mostly comprises of photography, how you can include photographs in your journal, and techniques to edit and 'crop' your photos. Throughout the book you also get the idea that the author loves cookies and invites you to join him in munching a few as you read, or carry out certain tasks instructed.
The book would actually be smaller if it didn't include a whole lot of 'notes' pages at the back and a rather long section on the Moonlight Chronicles which seems to be included to promote his other work and to bulk the book up.
It's a tide-you-over book, enjoyable, shouldn't be taken too seriously, and fun.
This book, really helps you learn how to keep a great journal without making it seem that much of an effort. For 2009, I am combining it with my love of Moleskines. I have the Moleskine 2009 Weekly Pocket Notebook and it has a weekly diary on one side, and space for comments on the other. That space is for notes and drawings on my week.
This book helps you fill that gap, so you can look back on life in your old age and contemplate what you have done with it. If you have kids, you could always hand it down to them...

This is such a cool little book, I say little because it is much smaller than I expected,about A6 size.
But what it lacks in size it makes up for in personality! Read more
I assumed this would be a large and hand-on book much like those by Keri-Smith. It definitely is not. Read morePublished on 27 Dec. 2013 by Mjh
