I admit I bought this one right out of the gate, no waiting around for me. Although when I read Gretchen Rubin's first book, The Happiness Project, the time and place were exactly right: I started when I was in Alabama visiting the Alabama Chanin Factory, and finished at a cabin on the north shore of Lake Superior. (Both places were perfect for reading, dwelling, and writing feverish notes in the margins.)
Right now, I have a lot on my plate that's not at home -- mainly, the process of moving in to my new studio -- and that's where my focus is, so I'm not ready to be distracted by a book called Happier at Home. But I will be, someday, and when I am, the book (and a pencil) will be waiting for me.
If you've already read this one, I'd love to hear your thoughts (unless you really didn't like it, in which case, please keep that to yourself!).
