what i'm reading

After I finished Little Bee (a new favourite!), I picked up two more books last week ( I have been staying up way past my bed time reading!)

The Happiness Project...


and Flip for Decorating.


I haven't had a chance to start the Happiness Project, but I have only heard great things about it, so I am uber excited.

I totally devoured Flip for Decorating and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great book devoted to decorating.

These past few weeks, I have gone back to reading and reading non stop for hours. I think it might be because basketball has been monopolizing our television (a little something called NBA playoffs?)

But you know, I love it. Sometimes television has a way of just sucking me in (ahem, trashy reality tv!!) So, I'm glad I have been spending my evenings reading and not sitting on the couch watching The Bachelorette.

I just started the Happiness Project, and it seems to be living up to all everyone said about it! I had put it on hold at our local library a few months back, and it FINALLY came in. I think I started my very own happiness project by doing a little victory dance on the way to pick it up :)

The Happiness Project sounds really fun. I think I will buy it soon. And the next book also sounds great. I will have to check that one out too.

Thanks for more books to read. x

I've never heard of The Happiness Project but it looks like a great read that will make you happy! =) I will definitely be adding this to my reading list! I need a few things to get me away from trashy reality TV (Bachelorette and True Beauty after it)!

Jozen, I'm so thrilled you're reading The Happiness Project -- I loved it and it really made me think about what I could change in my life. My favorite part? Gretchen never tells you what to do, she just tells you what she did and what worked for her. Let me know what you think!!
And this other book, that I will definitely check out.
