I looove books. I love reading books. I love buying books. I love books.
During my free time, I usually go online just to look for new books to check out, read book reviews and create a list of books to buy. Whenever there are book sales, I try my best to be there so I can get the books in my list 🙂
With my love for books, it makes me OC (obsessive compulsive) in terms of taking care of them. My husband would always tell me, the older and used-looking the book gets, the better. Uhm… not for me!
Here are some of the things I dread when it comes to MY books;
1. the cover or pages gets dirty
2. the spine or edges get wrinkled
3. the pages of my books get wrinkled! Waaaaaa!
4. people fold the corner pages of the book. Oh my!
5. people write on the pages of the book. Eeep!
So when I saw Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith online, I told myself that maybe this will help me release some of that OC-ness in me. Maybe it will help me just enjoy all the books I have. Maybe I’ll be able to rediscover the creativeness in me (trivia: I used to draw, using pencil, pretty well). Maybe… Maybe… Maybe…
Off I went to Fully Booked and lucky me, they still had 1 left in stock. Obviously, I checked for wrinkles on the cover, pages, made sure it was wrapped in plastic, etc… I’m sure you get what I mean 😉
Curious of what’s inside? Here’s a sneak peek…
Get the idea?
I’m not even sure how I’ll start the activities in this book! The mere thought frightens the OC side of me! Wish me luck and I’ll keep everyone posted!
* You may buy this book from Fully Booked (check online for availability). I got it for P520.00. I’m sure you’ll find it in other bookstores in Manila as well 🙂
* This is my 2nd Keri Smith book. The first one was “How To Be An Explorer of the World”, which I got mooooonths back but didn’t have the courage to get the book “dirty”. Learned about it from my friends, Aia and Myra. 🙂
* Visit Keri Smith‘s website. It’s pretty cool! You get to draw stuff and send it to her (little girl talking) 😀
* Check out Keri’s other books from here 🙂 I can’t wait to get all of them!
