Come on Get Happy
So the book that inspired my happiness project for this year is out on bookshelves now! I already preordered a copy, but since I'm out of town, it's sitting in my neighbor's apartment, who kindly agreed to collect our mail each day. I'm tempted to go buy another one just so I can read it now! But I guess I'll be sensible and wait until I get home.
I already read the Happiness Project blog, but I'm really excited about reading this book, as well. There's something so personal and comfortable about reading a book. I can't wait to fold down the corners of pages I really like, or to see the book stacked among my favorite books on my shelf once I'm done.
I always feel like when people come into my home and see my book shelf with my most beloved books, they get a glimpse into what I am about. Along with my "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child," my "How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will Talk," my "Collected works of Flannery O'Connor," my "Creative Counterpart," and my "Super Baby Food" books, I think that "The Happiness Project" will be one of those books I'll continually learn from and that I'll enjoy reading again and again. If any of you read it, let me know what you think, too!
What books do you keep on your shelf even when you've read them many times?
