Description

One of the Guardian's TOP TEN BOOKS to gift . . . AND, Woman & Home's best book to give.

Dawn French fans will love to receive this create-your-own journal in time for the new year - a combination of Dawn's warm and witty writing and a diary with space for the reader's contributions.

----------------------------

'START A JOURNAL alongside Dawn's witty outlook on life. This will have you laughing about your year' Prima

'This book is inspired!!!' Nadiya Hussain

'[It's] beautiful, like Dawn, and stuffed full of goodies' Jo Brand

----------------------------

This is Dawn French's fabulous new non-fiction book and it's totally interactive: take a lovely ramble through the year together with Dawn. Think of it as Dawn's diary, personalized by you . . . perfection.

I can't count the amount of diaries I have crammed full with entries in January, that then fizzle out as the other months pile in. One of my teenage diaries has fulsome fizzing reports of every single conversation, thought and feeling about every friend, every crush, every meal, every argument until mid-March, when the entry on the 18th simply reads,

'Washed hair.'

Thank god, this isn't that. This book is a way for us to tell the story of a year together. Feel free to write your appointments in it, lists, thoughts and reminders of, say, who to kill, and when, and in what order. But I've also written about age and life as I see it, through the seasons and the months, and I've added some places for you to join me in some fun and some thinking. By the end of the year, I am hoping you will have a fatter, scruffier book that is written by me but totally personalized by you.

Come on in. The paper is lovely . . .

AND . . . importantly, Me. You: A Diary comes with a practical elastic strap to keep all of your papers safe, with a pocket in the back for storing those special momentoes.
