Short and Sweet!,
This review is from: How to Make a Journal of Your Life (Paperback)
A short and sweet book which may surprise you initally how physically small the book is but once you start reading it becomes sweet and hard to put down. The book fits into your hand and is easy to carry around. One thing about this book that annoyed me slighty, and why it didn't get five stars, was the way it was printed out as some of the pictures or drawings where glued into the spine so you lost half of it. This was the case when two pages had a spread of a picture of his daughter but most of her face was in the spine and couldn't enjoy the full affect of the two pages.
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.
