What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? by The Buried Life April 30, 2012

Reminiscent of Post Secret, this book contains handwritten and hand-drawn contributions from participants in the project.  Each page has a separate “wish” from someone.  The story of the four young men of The Buried Life and their project is interspersed throughout the book.

I was really excited about this book, thinking it would be similar to Post Secret.  The project itself seemed interesting, although I didn’t really understand where all of the “wishes” in the book came from.  The Buried Life guys seemed inspired by their project, and it seems like they were trying to help others.  The book itself just fell flat for me.

2.5 out of 5 stars
