This book was rated 4 out of 5 for me, because it is exactly what it says in the title.
There is no story or plot, instead lists things to be happy about.
one thing i wanted to see was an explanation about why these things make us happy but it didnt have that
i have the smaller old version of the book, maybe in other versions in does
in general is a great leisure book. i'd recommend this to people who have a lot of free time,
enjoy the small things, and are not in it for a plot

I bought this book a few years ago on a whim. I really have enjoyed going through it numerous times. One of the things I have done as I have been reading it is I highlight the ones that make me happy. That way if I am having a bad day I can pick up the book and at a glance find something that can make me feel better or remind me to do something to make me feel better. I really enjoy this book.

It's a book about nothing and everything. It's a long list of places, moods, memories, and other miscellania.

We saw this book with some great anticipation, yet felt that it was simply a long list of things, ideas, etc. that the author was happy about. Compiled over 20 years, this book was a long time in the making and from the list of other books and calendars has a following. This is a good book for introspection and for looking at during trying times or when we need to be reminded of the beautiful things in life. The 3 rating was due to hoping there would be a little detail as to why she was happy about those things and why we could be too. However, like art, I guess she wants us to come up with our own list or agree or not with hers.

This book inspired me to make my own "happy list" once upon a time!! It is basically 612 pages of things that make the author happy. You might say, "how boring!" But, it's not! She received a PHD in Linguistics and that's quite obvious, because not many people could pull this off! I used to use this as a mood book, where I would underline things that made me happy. It would always take away my bad mood, because it would remind me that there is no reason to focus on the bad when there are so many little things in life to remember!
Some examples:
a chance to sleep in
naming your baby
buying fresh flowers
the pleasure of water
smelling corncob-smoked bacon sizzling, maple-scented muffins, and pancakes off the griddle
hair towels
going to three museums in a row
roller skating around the block
See what I mean? A lot of the things on the list have to do with food, really good, home cookin', so beware if you read it while hungry!! It reminds you of all the tiny, great things in the world! Keep it by your bedside table and drift off to sleep with corn muffins, lazy sunday afternoons, and kittens floating in your head!

Our daughter Samantha gave us this book as a Christmas gift. She included two different colored highlighter pens for us to note our special "sparklies".
We look thru the book daily, reading one another's choices, and adding more to our own addendum.
The only improvement I could see, would be to include a few blank pages in the back for added inspirations.

I bought this book and never looked at it, until one day at work I was reminded of it. I brought it to work and read a page a day to a coworker with whom I shared an office. It made us ponder each word and most importantly, laugh. It made us forget about our everyday things and sometimes chilly coworkers!
I am sending this to my former coworker for memories, laughs and good times even though we are miles apart now. Everyone should have a copy of this book at work!
