1 Page At At Time by Adam J. Kurtz

This is my new favorite thing. Get ready to be obsessed:


1 Page At A Time is a book, but not really. It has 365 pages but it's not a planner or a diary. I knew I loved it when I opened it to this page:

This wonderful thing arrived yesterday just as I was on my way out the door so I ripped it out of the packaging and chucked it in my bag. I had a couple of flip-throughs yesterday but didn't have time to get to know it.

This morning the weather is really horrible. See:

You can't even see from this photo how shitty it is outside today: blowing a gale and raining sideways. I knew what I should do: some work. I knew what I wanted to do: take myself out for coffee, which I almost never ever do.

So I opened the book randomly 8-ball style and it opened to this page:
Thank you little yellow book for being my enabler!

So I went to the coffee shop with no planners or notebooks at all so I wouldn't be distracted. Just me and this awesome little book.

I know I'm supposed to do one page at a time (it is the title, after all), but part of the joy of this book is breaking rules so I flipped around in the book. I don't want to give away too many of the wonderful surprises in this book so most of these page shots are ones I've already seen online anyway. Believe me, it is so nice to turn the page and see what comes up each time.



Some of it is goofy. Most of it is funny. Some of it is existential. All of it is awesome. It reminds me not to take everything, especially books/ notebooks, so seriously all the time. And it gets me off the internet for awhile.

It is wonderful and special and you want one. I ordered this one from Amazon.

You might remember I mentioned ordering this book in this post where I talked about this guy's planner I ordered too. It is the Unsolicited Advice planner and I can't wait to get it. He says using the planner and the 1 Page At A Time book together is double the fun. I'll see if he's right!

  1. What a fun book! I have one that's similar (perhaps not quite as whimsical) - The Sketchbook Project Journal (http://smile.amazon.com/Sketchbook-Project-Journal-More-than/dp/077043360X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1415297765&sr=8-1&keywords=sketchbook+project+journal). By the way, the weather is unbelievably crappy here (Seattle), too -- I think I'll go get a coffee, too. :-(
