Day 9: favorite book to give as a gift #30daybookchallenge

Sometimes, we all need to be reminded about the fact that joy can be found in the little things. I love to give this book as a little reminder for it. Things like 'using the cat to clean up crumbs', 'blankets' and 'keyboard shortcuts', just little everyday things (although, not the cat one I hope 😅).

Got this book as a present from my best friend when I was a teenager. Still like to flip through it. It's just a list of 14,000 things to be happy about, like "reading a lot of strange books"! #happyreads #marchintoreading

Zelma I love list books in general and I remember when this one came out. Such great things in there. And I'm currently wearing plaid cotton flannel. 😆 (edited) 3y
ValerieAndBooks OMG! I was given this one a long time ago too! I'm sorry to say I didn't keep it 😔, wish I had thought of highlighting like you did! 3y
