Want a Free Copy of “Happier at Home”?

Happier at Home hits the shelves in less than a month! To celebrate, I’m giving away one book each day for the next few weeks–hot off the presses.

Enter your name and email here, and every day, someone will be picked at random. U.S. and Canada only, alas.

If you’re wondering about the book, you can…

–learn more about it here

–read a sample chapter on the subject of “time” here

–email me for a one-page reading group guide here

–watch the Behind the Scenes video here (though you’d probably enjoy that more after you’ve read the book)

What a joy it was to write this book! I hope you enjoy it.

Other posts you might be interested in . . .


    I start my day with your posts and the happiness quote. Love giving your books as a present to friends.
    So PLEASE sign me up!

    Hi Gretchen,
    The “here” is not alowing me to enter my name for a free book, do you know if there was a problem with that since I am in Canada.

    • gretchenrubin

      No, that shouldn’t be a problem…I’ll go ahead and enter you by hand, so don’t worry about it.

  • MissionalMama

    Thanks for offering the giveaway! Looking forward to reading it, hoping to win! 🙂

  • There’s no way I won’t get a stack of them sold and read by others. My friends tease me about the number of times I say, “Well, Gretchen says….” But I’d treasure a free copy anyway.

      Thanks so much!

    • gretchenrubin

      Awww, thanks!

  • I can’t believe September is almost here but I’m really looking forward to reading your new book.

  • Rachel

    I’ve restricted my reading of the Happiness Project to when I’m actually on and using the elliptical trainer. I found myself so engrossed. It ensures a daily visit to the gym! I’ll soon be finished at this rate and while a whole lot healthier what will I do next? Happier at Home seems like a natural progression.

    • gretchenrubin

      Wonderful! I’m thrilled to hear that work is being used as an exercise treat!


  • Rachel

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Thank you! I would love to win this…but will definitely look for it!

  • suzi

    Awesome! I just entered! I’m literally about 2/3 way through reading The Happiness Project so the timing is excellent – fingers crossed!

  • I would love a copy of this book! I too am searching for happiness and need direction. Your toolbox and blog are an inspiration to me. Thank you so much!

  • KAbbett

    I have pre ordered, but I can give a copy to a friend! If things aren’t going my way, I say “You’re messing with my Happiness Project!”

  • Vicki Carroll

    This is a great little contest – I’ll have to remember it if I ever write a book – it could happen! Thank you for your imagination!

  • Jen C.

    I want! is this still available? :/

    • gretchenrubin

      Alas, no.
