Unlike the chap who liked the product so much he bought the company (Remington?), I just sit around bemoaning the fact that I didn’t come up with the idea in the first place to anyone who will listen and admit that they also think it is a brilliant idea. Actually, in this case, I would never have come up with the idea as I adore books, love them to bits and could think of nothing worse than scribbling all over it and tearing it up. So why do I wish I had thought of this little gem?
‘Wreck This Journal’ is a book where each page advises you on the task to complete with that sheet of paper. Scrunch it, make a drinking cup, make paper chains, etc. It is a glorious idea that any child who loves origami and doodling will love. I was one of those freakish children who, as soon as they had an ink blot on their book felt they had ruined it and so that child would have been horrified at being given a book whose sole purpose was to be destroyed.
My only consolation (see what a perfectly horrid person I am) is that this book can never be brought out as an e-book or audio version…or can it?
