Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun by Gretchen Rubin
The book of the month this month goes nicely with our current topic in the conversation sessions – happiness. In the book, Gretchen Rubin has an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. “The days are long, but the years are short,” she realises. “Time is passing, and I’m not focusing enough on the things that really matter.” In that moment, she decides to dedicate a year to her happiness project.
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
Roberts states that this book took him twenty years to write. It could well take me twenty years to read it!
One Day by David Nicholls
It’s July 15th, 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another.
It’s taken me over two months to read this book by Sebastian Faulks, but to be honest it is not the book’s fault. I have just been very busy.
