Read in May, 2012

To put it bluntly I feel the author came off as a snob. She loves the old scrapbooks, but thinks the modern version is worthless. I'm still trying to figure out how she grasped on to the wonderful of old, makes the same comparisons and still manages to arrive at a different conclusion about modern ones. If one doesn't have anything nice to say...probably she should have left it out of her book entirely and focused soley on historic scrapbooks. I also agree with several other reviews, there was too much white space, or blank space surrounding the pictures, the type was too small for such open spaces and I felt it could have been done better.
