When Arthur Jones cocreated a reading series centered around ubiquitous Post-Its(r), the series struck a chord. It grew in popularity and was ultimately featured on a This American Life live simulcast broadcast across the nation.
Inspired by the series and spanning a wide and weird range of topics from an A-list roster of contributors, Post-It(r) Note Diaries captures everyday occurrences from a job interview gone hilariously awry and a nude run-in with a neighbor to hair-raising events like an overnight encounter at Nicholas Cage's house (it's not what you think!), and nearly drowning while trying to paddle across the East River in a homemade canoe. Post-It(r) Note Diaries is perfect for NPR addicts and fans of unique graphic favorites like Postsecret and Blankets.
Diarists include: John Hodgman, David Rakoff, Hanna Tinti, Arthur Bradford, Chuck Klosterman, Andrew Solomon, Starlee Kine, Kristen Schaal, Mary Roach and Andrew Bird.

Post-It Note Diaries: 20 Stories of Youthful Abandon, Embarrasing Mishaps, and Everyday Adventure is edited and illustrated by Arthur Jones. The stories are true and are illustrated by black marker on Post-it notes. Each story is certainly unique. The topics include John Hodgman's experience while riding the NYC subway while holding a staff topped with a green Styrofoam cobra head to Mary Roach's story of time spent in the company of Nicolas Cage. Arthur Jones' story about a previous landlord is particularly memorable.All the stories are about what can happen in a life and some are embarrassing, some humorous and all easy to read. I tried to choose one story as my personal favorite and then I would read another one and it became my favorite. Each story has its own merits and the collection will appeal to a wide range of readers.Arthur Jones' wonderful illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to each story. I received the book at no charge from Goodreads First Reads.
Prophecy: Grounded and not seen. Cures her clan but gone. Left a med behind to follow her path. Ice of tv's banes shall fell the foa. Aided by shining black and darkest fire, with burning static leading the way. Beware FOA, the end is near...
Great stories with great illustrations.
