I LOVED this book about friendship, traveling and finding yourself along the way. Sometimes friends only see the side you want them to see, the put-together, got it going on side. But when you travel together like this, all your sides show, even when you don't want them to. Inspired me to want to get out there and GO! Nicely done ladies!

The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin
The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle and Generally Have More Fun

I picked up the book because of an interest in pursuing more moments of happiness and it does provide many clever ideas and thoughts without coming across overly "New-Age-ish."

This is a book about focusing each month for a year on a different theme all relating to living happier. While I wouldn't necessarily pick each theme for myself there are some interesting and useful glimpses into someone else's goals and gains.

A fun book that I would recommend for anyone looking for ways to shake out of a slump!

So Much for That (P.S.) by Lionel Shriver
So Much for That (P.S.)

Stacers1973, January 1, 2012

I ended up loving this book, even though at first I wasn't sure if I would even finish it. I ended up really caring about the characters and wishing it wouldn't end quite yet. I felt it was a gritty story told with both harshness and grace and about how people don't always have to be slaves to who they think they are.

I loved the original voice I found in this book....Gabrielle is quite the gal to follow! The food, the love, the crazy life...a compelling book!

Fahrenheit 451 (53 Edition) by Ray Bradbury
Fahrenheit 451 (53 Edition)

Stacers1973, February 19, 2008

I just read this for the first time due to seeing it in the library as the Clackamas County Big Read pick. What a great story, absolutely fascinating ... amazing prose, a current classic. Deep characters that demand more than what their world is offering. Highly recommended!
