I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

The Happiness Project was a nice reminder of how to pivot and focus on the things that matter. I appreciated Gretchen Rubin's methodical and organized approach to each of her monthly goals. She does a good job of respecting that every person's happiness project will be different, looking at different goals and facilitating the project with a different process. She shares her successes and failures equally. She makes notes of both her positive attributes and the elements of her life and personality that she would like to change or improve upon. I found The Happiness Project inspiring without any preaching. I was not so inspired that I jumped right into a happiness project of my own but I have found myself drawing on a number of observations and musings from the book since I finished this account of Gretchen Rubin's journey to a happier existence.
