Small Happies

Sometimes Happiness can come from the small things.
Since I can use some positive focusing, I'm going to spend some time noticing some little things that make me Very Happy!


First up, a sunny day. A blanket, some comfy pillows and a good book.

I just finished up Wizard and Glass, the fourth book in Steven King's The Dark Tower series. I was underwhelmed by the first book, but got sucked right in when I pushed on with the second. I have flown through these first four in record time.
I've run a small snag in that I can't quite seem to find a copy of the next book in the series either in the library or in second-hand shops, but I'm sure that it will come eventually. So far I've heard that the following books aren't nearly as good as the ones I've already finished though, so perhaps it's best if I take a bit of a breather.

I'm currently reading Geisha of Gion: The Memoir of Mineko Iwasaki. I was intending to wait and begin it on April 23, the "official" start date of the Read The World challenge (a reading challenge which aims to read books from as many different countries as possible in one year), but I had finished Wizard and Glass quicker then I anticipated and it was here and tempting! I even think I may finish this before Friday, too... But no matter, there are still many books from Japan that are on my To Be Read list!

I love the Dark Tower series! I own some of them, but will have to seriously investigate which ones, as our bookcases are a complete mess. We haven't had a chance to organise them yet! I have a feeling that Wizard and Glass was the last one we own though, and that I borrowed the rest from my library. I intend to own the rest eventually though.

I hadn't heard of the Read the World challenge, but will telling my library all about it. Thanks!!
