Books I’m Reading – March 2012 Update

One of my goals for the year is to read more books. Well, I am happy to report I am still reading and loving it. I hope to continue this habit throughout the year and beyond.

I didn’t read as many books in February compared to January. I mostly read and finished The Happiness Project.

Below is an updated list of my 2012 Read and To-Read Books.

Currently reading this book now…

An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace. I am about half way through this book. It is taking me longer than expected to finish. As I read it, I find myself visualizing all the food combinations the author passionately describes. All the food talk makes me hungry which is a bit distracting while reading. This in no way is a bad thing. I will talk more about An Everlasting Meal next month.


On my to-read list…


Miserly Moms: Living Well on Less in a Tough Ecomony

On Writing Well, 30th Anniversary Edition: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction

Books I read in February

The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun
My thoughts: This book made me think about what makes me truly happy. Is it actions, people, activities? A career, a hobby, my behavior, my habits, my relationships? What steps can I do daily to be happier. The author, Gretchen Rubin, tells you what she did for a whole year testing out studies and theories to be happier. She even breaks it down by monthly themes. I like her idea of having Personal Commandments to happiness. I should write some for myself. Visit her blog – The Happiness Project to learn more or read her book The Happiness Project.
