Wreck This Journal - Begins!

The Next Chapter, a book blogging group begins today and out book this time is Wreck this Journal. And what better way to start the journey then by throwing my copy from a rooftop! Talk about starting off with a bang, or a tumble...



There was some great resistance to post this without downloading the before & after pics to go with it and make it all perfect and stuff but I want to share now now now NOW NOW! So I am, because there is something about the project that speaks to a very "Do it!" nature. Thanks to Jamie for taking the video, and of course to leading us through this journey.

Ok, I suck and succumbed to add the pic of where it landed below. But at least I admit it! Enjoy the journey.

Oh what fun that you sisters can wreck havoc together! So cool to see you on video (and of course to hear Jamie's laughter!).

What a treat! This was the most fun. This whole journey was worth it just to have this moment of throwing our books off the roof together! I still can't believe yours landed so beautifully right under some flowers. And I laugh every time I watch the video and there's that moment when it looks like maybe, just maybe, that journal's not going to fall. LOL!

I loved seeing this video, such enthusiasm. I think I will need a partner to film when I throw mine. Its hard to do by yourself. What a fun journey this is going to be.

Ha! Loved it. You really were wondering if you could actually do it weren't you! I'm waiting for mine to arrive. Can't actually get on my roof without a lot of ladders and safety equipment involved so I'll have to improvise. There's a castle near where I work, would that do I wonder? Maybe I should dress up as a medieval princess for the occasion! I'm loving sharing this experience already - great to be part of a community of such like-minded people!

OMG! I love this! I had no idea you were going to be participating and I love that we did the same destructive thing but yours was way more subversive and scary! You are too much fun Shannon, way to go!

I am having a blast seeing how hesitant everyone is to do some wrecking. We are so programmed to take care of our things, especially books. This is going to be very liberating!

LOVE IT! Oh, how I love to hear the two of you laugh together. That was very cinematic of the journal to hang on for a second before plummeting.
