14,000 Things to Be Happy About: The Happy Book

3.2
Flannel sheets. Strawberry ice cream. Making faces at monkeys in the zoo. Dog dishes that say " Good Dog. " Carolers singing around a Norwegian spruce. Sun burning off the morning fog. Cabanas. It 's the little way that make life worth living, and they can be found by the ozens in this bsessive, quirky, and utterly captivating compendium with over 950,000 copies in print. A pure, unadulterated listing, it offers not a single explanation, aside, or footnote, but reading it is as seductiv as eating popcorn. Randomly selected and catalogued over the course of twenty years-and illustrated with joyous and jewel-like precision by the gifted artist Pierre Le-Tan-14,000 THINGS is Barbara Ann Kipfer 's perfect antidote to the all-too-frequently-mentioned things we should be unhappy about.

It 's a parad of almost everything that 's ever made us smile. And that itself is reason number 14,001.

It makes us think about life, love, relationshi, who we are, who we used to be, and how we will be unable to achieve even our greatest dreams by finding happiness in daily routine, in everyday life.5 out of 5 stars, because it really is a " Bible " for my gray days.

Whereas I 'm not adding an 'Date I finished this book'.I got this book for christmas and since then I 've made it a habit to picking up this book at a moment during the ay, usually right before I go to bed and flip through a couple of pages and read a handfu of these 'things to be happy about'.

My best friend at the time and I went into a book store and bought this book.

So I think it 's silly to judge this book on the contrary that you ca n't relate to every single thing listed.
