A Handful of Happiness for a Thursday....

I'm reading the most fantastic book at the moment 
a funny, inspiring, thought-provoking, fascinating read.

Recommended to me by my lovely (and very wise) friend Meredy over at Count It All Joy ,
I know I'm going to be blogging about it.

Has anyone else read it?

Happy Thursday!!



  1. Simone, all so true and I am going to order the Happiness Project!

    I hope you will enter my Giveaway from Serena & Lily.

  2. A lovely post Simone...I haven't heard of this book, I'll definitely be buying it...thank you.
    And a Happy Thursday to you!

  3. I started reading it a year ago and got distracted by other pressing things. I still have it on my ereader and plan to get back to it as soon as I finish the book I am currently reading. The author is on twitter and posts some interesting tweets. She is friendly and responds!

  4. I've had The Happiness Project sitting in my amazon shopping basket for about 6 weeks - I think I might need to actually getting around to purchasing it!

  5. It's been on my list for a while. I follow the authors blog but still haven't got around to reading the book. Would be really interested to hear your views Sim :-) x

  6. Great quotes for a seriously boring day at work! :)

  7. Hello, my dear blog friend,
    Happy New Year!
    I haven't read the Happiness Project (yet) but intend to do so. I am reading the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society at the moment and it's making me quite happy too :)

    Lots of love,

  8. I have heard such wonderful things about "The Happiness Project" so I suppose it will be added to my ever growing list of things to read.

    Also, I may have to pull out your list of photos to take on the days when things are quiet and I find it difficult to think of things to document. I am going to certainly do my best.

    Have a fantastic day!


  9. My daughter is reading right now and several friends have too, as I also have! Wonderful! xxoo

  10. An awesome post for the New Year. :)

    May you have a fantastic 2012!


  11. We've done it again Simone...that ESP thing we're so fond of. I just posted a giveaway for this book on my blog and then popped over to see your latest news and hey presto! Wait until you get to the May chapter! I'm finding I have to read this with a notebook and a pen handy.

    Beautiful images as always. I don't quite know how you manage to nail the essence of a subject within a collage of images, but somehow you always do!

    Have you had snow yet? Meredy xo

  12. Loving all these happy quotes Simone ~ I must look for that book ~ sounds like one that I would enjoy. xo

  13. Hello Sweets Yep, Gretchen Rubin is a legend. I'm thoroughly enjoying reading it. You can subscribe to her blog and her 2012 Happiness Project, if you're interested. J x

  14. Purchase complete - I downloaded it to my kindle last night ready to take with on my trip to Australia in 2 weeks - I think it will make a great read for the plane journey!
