Yesterday, I was in Chapters, and as I was leaving, I randomly happened to come across this book:

Naturally, the title made me curious, so I went over to take a look at it. And I found that the literal intent of this book is for you to ruin it. Like, seriously. All the pages are labelled with instructions like this:

This one is getting done close to the end, due to sanitary reasons.

In case you can't read it (as my finger IS covering the first word), it says "Tape this journal closed and mail it to yourself."


So, even though I had no intention of originally buying this, I caved once I saw the stuff that you're meant to do with it. :P

This book is gonna be destroyed when I'm done with it.  But I'm holding off on doing anything else for a little bit, as my brother had the ingenious idea to make it a video series (and I have to wait for some things to fall into place first): document the book going from pristine condition to the bedraggled mess it'll be at the end.  It's going to be so much fun (both the video series, and wrecking this book).  I hope you'll enjoy watching it as much as I will ruining it.
