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.
