Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first in National Geographic's 365-photo-a-day line of inspirational books, Daily Joy unites inspiring words of joy with lovely National Geographic images of the world--a perfect gift to keep on your bedside table to read just before bed or first thing in the morning. Crafted in the tradition of the successful Offerings series from Abrams/Stewart Tabori & Chang, Daily Joy's elegant design features 365 days of gorgeous National Geographic photography, each one paired with a meaningful quotation, meditation, or thought that will help readers find joy every day of the year. Each month has a theme, and all the quotes are centered around it:

January/Renewal:  "Just where you are--that's the place to start." --Pema Chodron

February/Love:  "Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." --Khalil Gibran

March/Authenticity:  "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." --Mahatma Gandhi

April/Growth:  "A jug fills drop by drop." --Buddha

May/Courage: "It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it has to have tried and succeeded." --Anne Morrow Lindbergh

June/Perspective: "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." --J. K. Rowling

July/Adventure: "Life itself is the proper binge." --Julia Child

August/Freedom: "Freedom is from within." --Frank Lloyd Wright

September/Purpose:  "The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause." --Mark Twain

October/Fulfillment: "Ah! There's nothing like staying home for real comfort." --Jane Austen

November/Wisdom:  "Sleep is the best meditation." --The Dalai Lama

December/Faith: "Peace is always beautiful." --Walt Whitman 

As poet John Keats wrote, "A thing of beauty is a joy forever," and readers will turn to Daily Joy year after year to find wonder, awe, and happiness in the world around them.
