PICTURE OF ME: Who I Am in 221 Questions
Kate Marshall and David Marshall, Broadway Books, March 2009, $13.95

Question: Who are you?
Not so easy, right? Want help?

In the era of online profiles comes a good, old-fashioned paper journal that helps you answer life’s most basic question—Who am I?—in bite-sized pieces. PICTURE OF ME is a journal of playful and stimulating prompts that ask everything from what you love about your closest friends to your three best physical features, which kind of dog best represents your personality, some common smells and sounds in your home, and what makes you proud.

The 221 prompts ask for a few words, a list, checkmarks, photos, drawings or doodles. What emerges is a colorful portrait of who you are and what your life is like right now.

Some great reasons to start your journal include:

- To celebrate this moment – a milestone birthday, graduation or other special time
- For yourself – to create a self portrait in words, to check in with where you are in your life.
- To get to know your significant other better - swap journals to build intimacy
- As a safe, private alternative to online profiles
- To satisfy your mother or someone else who asks too many questions, at least for a while…

The Table of Contents and sample prompts are shown at www.marshallbooks.net.
