Soothing. Some terrific thoughts. Some less so. Lots of embedded commercials for specific companies. Less resource lists, more go here-buy this. But I appreciate that some people prefer to be told what to do rather than discover pleasures of their own.

I bought this book when I was going through difficult times: parents ill and then dying while I going through menopause. There are ideas for relaxing...making your own herbal teas, putting on a warm flannel nightgown right out of the dryer and some recipes for comfort food. This one I keep and thumb through every once in a while!

I didn't get to read every tidbit in this book before it had to be back at the library but I think I'll go in buy it. It's broken down into seasons and then in each season there are stories, recipes, suggestions for things to do to enjoy the most of that season - which can be hard in winter which is why I picked this up!

This was a very relaxing read. It is great to pick up and read if you are having a rough day, and you don't feel compelled to read the whole thing at once. Many of the suggestions deal with enjoying the everyday things that we see to overlook/take for granted.
Very nice book :)

This is my favorite feel good book! I like this book and the other one about holidays in this series. However, I looked at all of the other ones, and they are too similar to this one. So do yourself a favor and just get this one (and maybe the holidays one).

One book divided by the seasons chock full of quaint stories, quotes, tips, and recipes about the art of living well. Unfortunately, I did not get much out of this book.
