Wreck This Journal

I bought the 'book' shown above during a quick trip to Barnes & Noble today. I was looking for the new Card A Day book and ran into a couple similar books by Keri Smith. After perusing them for a bit, I decided on Wreck This Journal.

On each page are dares, prompts, instructions, etc. that may seem absurd at first, but I think it will be a totally fun process. Who doesn't want to tie a book behind them and drag it while going on a walk?! Or tear out a page and set it on fire?! ;)

My goal is to complete one page each day and date the page when I am finished and write any applicable notes/observations.

Today, for instance, I was to climb to a high place and drop the book. Fortunately for the book, the highest I could climb right now was to the second story of our house. The book made it through safely. :)

Here are some photos from today's challenge:

Before the fall...

Stepping off the ledge...

  1. hahahahaha poor book! What a great adventure you have started. I'm trying to imagine the look on people's faces when you walk by with a book dragging behind you!

    They might start thinking your "not right in the head". What a hoot!!

  2. ha! I absolutely love this, I am going to have to go to barnes and Nobles and check this book out. I'm due for a trip there anyhow. I don't know if I'll be buying it myself but I have to see some of the challenges, sounds GREAT! hehe
