Format: Paperback
Update (22-Dec-2014): Had to reduce to one star. I really wanted to like this book. The concept is great. The ideas to generate doodling are wonderful. But the paper is awful. If you use a black pen to go with the black image on the page (which to me makes sense) to create something new with the image, your marks will be visible on the backside of that page which interferes with the image on that back side. Good idea. Good potential book. Why print on such cheap, flimsy paper? If it is a matter os size, I'd be happier with less pages and ideas but better paper since this is an interactive book the user is supposed to draw in. Disappointed. :(

(22-Oct-2012) I'm enjoying using this book as a visual diary to just sort of record how a day went--I tend to be more visual in my communication and this is a much better outlet for me than a traditional diary format ever has been. I like that you don't have to go in order and can jump to any 2-page spread (each one has a place to note the date and time of your entry so it's easy to recall when something was drawn, written, etc.). I thought I'd use this just as an exercise to get through creative blocks now and then but have since found I look forward to opening it up at the end of a long day and lose myself in doodles and writing a bit.

The only reason I didn't give my review all five stars is the quality of the paper. I really wish this had been printed on heavier paper. I doodle with a fairly fine point permanent black marker and sometimes like to do a light brush of some watercolor paint over the top. Unfortunately the marker can often be seen on back of the page and the paint (even with the bare minimum of moisture) roughs up the paper surface a lot.

this is a delightful little gem of a book. line drawings and clever text prompt you to fill in with whatever your heart desires -- you can be as serious, or as silly, as you want. it's fun, sentimental, it brings out your inner child and sense of play. a quirky little visual diary that prompts you to reflect on life in original ways. click on "look inside" and you'll see EXACTLY what you're getting, format is consistent through book. wonderful as a gift.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most innovative concepts in years, its a diary, a journal of your life, a simple doodle passtime its what ever you want it to be today. Whether your schoolage or senior person its a means to unlocking a creative side that maybe you didnt know you had, or its an alternate record of how your feeling about life and the world around you, the book is your to use a you wish, no guidelines or rules just pure creativity, from artist to everyday doodler the use and enjoyment are the same. Its a tool, its a game, its a record but most of all its just fun.
Easy to kep with you and use anywhere, I use it to shrink dull airline time or hotel time between meetings, helps me reflect, download and sometimes focus all you need is a pen or pencil and your copy.
Great idea and great fun, thanks the scribble diary, Ray in Australia.

The paper quality isn't great as some have mentioned but I still find this journal really fun.

I've been using colored pencils and I've been having a lot of fun deciding whether to draw something or use words. I also enjoy getting creative with the prompts. Every once in a while I see a prompt I find odd, like two circles with "fake" and "real" above them. So I just drew a pair of boobs because I'm immature.

Basically, this journal is what you want it to be.

What a great book! It's kind of like a diary, but instead of writing about your day you doodle in it. Or you can do works of art! Or if you are so inclined, you can write. There are no rules for what you do with it. If you want you could set it on fire and throw it into an orphanage! But don't actually do that. I'm just saying you could, but you shouldn't. Those orphans have had a rough time already. Every page has a couple of little prompters, which are basic shapes and an idea as a starting point for your doodling. Very fun!

This book is extremely fun and helps me keep practicing drawing when I don't really feel like doing a full-out sketch. It helps me express a few of my sillier thoughts. I enjoy it. The only complaint is it's a bit difficult to draw on the left-side pages because the book is so small but with a little practice you can get use to it okay and hey it being a scribble diary, it's not necessarily about the quality of the drawing so much as the experience :)

First rule for books meant to be written / drawn in is hugh quality paper.

This is terribly thin paper. I bought this as a gift and I am embarrassed to give it as it seems like dollar store grade paper.

You can see the print on the back of every single page. Drawing in this will be a nightmare.

The idea of the book was great, cheap publishing killed it.

This is just a fun book to relax with at night and record thoughts on your day with. I didn't find the pages too thin. Used colored pencils or ball point pens instead of a gel style pen.
