    The Book Group discussion of this book gave many of us a new framework within which to view the story. It was all much more meaningful for us. The leader suggested that we listen to the story - that listening to it added so much. ( A little like Shakespeare.)

    I loved Austin Kleon's one of a kind book. I think I need to make my journals bigger so I can doodle, collage, etc. and write in them. Thanks for passing this along.
