Bookshelf Porn is a photoblog of the best bookshelf photos. I could spending hours looking through all these images. And someday I hope to have an amazing bookshelf library. Here are some of my favorites from the site.

the happiness project

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I just finished reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and loved every single page of it. The book documents Gretchen’s year long experiment to change her life without really changing it. Written with charm and wit, it was very easy to relate to Gretchen’s journey of changing little things to increase her happiness and therefore focusing on the things that really matter. My favorite quote from the book “Flawed can be more perfect than perfection.”

I’m probably not going to start my own happiness project but I have been inspired to make lots of little changes in my life. Hope it can inspire you too!

Buy the book here.

Just received my copy of Like I Give a Frock in the mail so that I can participate in Mrs. Lilien’s book club. I scanned through it quickly and it looks like it has some great illustrations. Yay for new inspiration! Can’t wait to spend more time with it over the weekend. AND if you haven’t checked out Mrs. Lilien’s blog it’s quite fabulous—one of my new favorites because of her exquisite fashion sensibility.

Have a great weekend!
