Reflect on your year with The Happiness Project Journal Yearbook, my collaboration with Chatbooks.

“Seldom Have I Realized So Keenly, Appreciated So Fully, These Still, Dark Hours.”

“Seldom Have I Realized So Keenly, Appreciated So Fully, These Still, Dark Hours.”

“Peace again!--The exquisite hour before dawn, here at my old desk--seldom have I realized so keenly, appreciated so fully, these still, dark hours.”

-- Edward Weston, Daybooks

Yesterday I posted about how much I love working in the early morning, and why I think it's a strategy to consider for people who lack time to pursue something important; I'm often reminded of this line from Weston's diaries.


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.

Enter your name and email in the sign-up form here, and every day, someone will be picked at random. Open to readers in U.S., Canada, and U.K. only–sorry about that restriction on the give-away. (I need to update the form, which doesn't include U.K., but U.K. is included.)

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

listen to a clip from the audio-book here

pre-order the book here (pre-orders give a big boost to a book, so I really appreciate pre-orders!)
