    Particular Books are very excited to welcome the creative talents of best-selling author Keri Smith. Her books are huge word-of-mouth hits in the US: where four years after publication, Keri's first book Wreck This Journal continues to sell a thousand copies a week? This is Not a Book takes a uniquely skewed look at the purpose and function of 'a book', Keri Smith asks readers to creatively examine all the different ways This Is Not a Book can be used. With intriguing prompts, readers will discover that this book can be: A secret message - tear out a page, write a note on it for a stranger, and leave it in a public place. A recording device - have everyone you contact today write their name in the book. An instrument - create as many sounds as you can using the book, like flipping the pages fast or slapping the cover. This Is Not a Book will engage readers by having them define everything a book can be by asking, 'If it's not a book, what is it then?' - with a kaleidoscope of possible answers.
