July: Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith



One of the recommended reads in this month's issue of readergirlz is the non-fic pick Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith. Many thanks to postergirl Miss Erin for bringing this cool, do-it-yourself book to our attention.

Wreck This Journal is exactly what the title implies: a journal you tear up, draw in, decorate, and create! I think The Plain Janes would be all over this book. Check out the awesome intro page as well as the Flickr group. Way to wreck a rec!

Want to win a free copy of Keri Smith's next book, How to Be an Explorer of the World? Simply leave a comment below with your email address. One winner will be selected at random on Tuesday, July 14th and notified via email that day.
Note: Entrants must be residents of the U.S. or Canada and have a valid email address.

Update: Thanks to all who entered. The contest is now closed. The winner is dreadfulpenny. Congratulations!
