Blog 2 – So Far...

Ok so I know it's only been a little while since learning my first day's challenges but I have already begun carrying them out so I thought I report back. I have successfully created a disguise for THIS IS NOT A BOOK. After trying with a pot holder and a lunch bag I settled for a sign on the front, throwing anyone of the scent. I also carried out the test of endurance and held the book above my head for over 11 minutes, which I think is pretty good (side note I found a website that is a stop watch, they have everything on the internet these days!) I am still carrying out the inconvenience of keeping the book with me at all times, that's a week long one so I've still got a little while to go. Plus I will put up the recording device page once I finished recording today's day.

I've just read my 7 pages for today, it will involve glue, paper, scissors and colouring in pencils. Yay!!

Oh the coolest thing ever happened after I googled the author of THIS IS NOT A BOOK, Keri Smith, I emailed her the details of this little blog and she watched it and emailed back!! So awesome! It's like Julie & Julia but with glue, paper, scissors and colouring in pencils. For more details about Keri Smith and the book which is not a book check out http://www.kerismith.com/ and also check out the how to be a guerrilla artist section because it is such an awesome idea.

  1. I just watched the first two videos - what a fun idea! (I read Keri Smith's blog and she linked to you.) This is making me a) want to go out and get a copy of This is Not a Book of my own and b) have some fun playing with another of Keri Smith's books that I do already have a copy of (How to Be an Explorer of the World).
