Book Notes: Post-it Note Diaries by Arthur Jones

"When Arthur Jones cocreated a reading series centered around ubiquitous Post-Its(r), the series struck a chord. It grew in popularity and was ultimately featured on a This American Life live simulcast broadcast across the nation.
Inspired by the series and spanning a wide and weird range of topics from an A-list roster of contributors, Post-It(r) Note Diaries captures everyday occurrences from a job interview gone hilariously awry and a nude run-in with a neighbor to hair-raising events like an overnight encounter at Nicholas Cage's house (it's not what you think!), and nearly drowning while trying to paddle across the East River in a homemade canoe. Post-It(r) Note Diaries is perfect for NPR addicts and fans of unique graphic favorites like Postsecret and Blankets.
Diarists include: John Hodgman, David Rakoff, Hanna Tinti, Arthur Bradford, Chuck Klosterman, Andrew Solomon, Starlee Kine, Kristen Schaal, Mary Roach and Andrew Bird."

I wasn't sure if I was going to review this book since it's kind of different. It's hard to review, but I decided to tell you guys about it because it was such a fun read. I don't read too many books with illustrations, but it worked really well with the stories. I thought the concept behind the book is such a great idea.

While reading some of the stories, it's hard to believe some of them are real with how random and outrageous they are. The stories jump from funny to sad and thought provoking. With how short each story is, it's easy to read this book in pieces if you're looking for a break from doing work. I think it's definitely worth checking out for how unique it is, and I look forward to reading more in the future if they come out. Thanks to NetGalley for letting me check it out!
