We’re on Day 3 of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and we’ve got a topic of the day:
We invite you to share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger. What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?
Although I’m a total sucker for books about happiness and gather them to me like flowers for a posy, I was cynical when I saw 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 by Gretchen Rubin.
It looked like “stunt nonfiction,” which I found tiresome even before it became a force of nature.
But then Raych of the incomparable books i done read wrote a rave review of The Happiness Project, and since Raych ain’t no pushover, I decided to Give That Book A Try.
And… I loved The Happiness Project.
And I raved about it, too.
(Head on over to books i done read and read Raych’s review straightaway! Then head on over to your library’s web site to place a hold on the book. Seriously.)
