Pass The Book: The Fifth

It's Thursday, it's time for Pass The Book, and I have a confession. I'm going to find it very hard to pass this one on.

Inner Excavation by Liz Lamoreux

It only slid through my letterbox yesterday (though I ordered it way back in December) - and it is so full of good things I can't put it down. I'm flipping through it right now because it's a difficult one to describe. It's certainly beautiful to look at (so that ticks the first box) - full of gorgeous photographs and project examples - and it's definitely a fascinating read. First of all I started dipping into it, then I decided I need to enjoy every word, front to back, as soon as possible. I think another photo will let you see what I mean.


By a happy coincidence, the very hour it arrived with me I clicked onto Ali Edwards post for the day - and discovered she had included a recording of Liz Lamoreux reading aloud some of the One Little Word choices. So I read and I listened at exactly the same time. And then I hunted out Liz's blog.

So, if you fancy a chance at delving into Inner Excavation (explore yourself through photography, poetry and mixed media) by Liz Lamoreux (but you do have to let go of it when you are finished!), leave a comment and, as usual, I'll draw a name in a week's time. All the Pass The Book information is here or please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

And, finally, Today I'm Loving...a project inpired by one of the Pass The Book choices, November's Good Mail Day. A postcard a week? I'll be looking out for them!

I already finished Good Mail Day. Although I preferred the first half to the second half, it was as a whole very inspiring. I just wanted to thank you again for alerting me to its existence x

Hi Sian, this books sounds just up my street. Photography, poetry, mixed media, exploration!! Please include me in the draw :)

I tried the link you gave about a project inspired by one of the Pass The Book Choices and unfortuantly it didn't work.

Love your generousity in offering the Book Choice. Thank you, you have great taste!

Well, thank you Sandie :) I've checked that link and it seems okay this end - anyone else having trouble?

Looks like I have a lot of competition for this book, but really, I do think it is my turn to win. So I'm putting that out there for the Universe to make it happen! ;)

I'm not even going to try and bribe horsey this time, he is one mighty unreliable hobby horse! I'm just going to put my name out there and keep my fingers crossed. And toes.
