I read this a few months ago and really liked it. I made myself a "Rules for Happiness" list, and I can't remember if I made it because she suggested so, or because I was jealous that she had such a good working notion of the things that made her happy. Either way, that was fun too. :)

I'm about a third of the way through the book. I started a goal list last January with definable check-ins and progress markers but not to the extent of the author of THP. Hopefully reading it will help me figure out a better definition of what I've already started.
Keep me posted on what you think when you're finished!

Ringo's grandfather in "Hard Days Night" said," You can learn from books, you know."
It is always good to be thinking and getting thoughts that could be of value. The real joy is putting good thoughts into action. Keep working on those thoughts and the outcome will be the best for everyone.

Our book club's next read is "The Awakening" by Kate Chopin. Most of the way through it I realized that (a) I had no idea what was going on with Edna or why and (b) I didn't care. I will just show up to catch up with my book club friends. Just like last month with "Blood Meridian". The Happiness Project sounds much more my speed!
