really liked it
Read in January, 2009

This book is meant to be read in short bursts, a chapter or two a day. Holland has an amazing way with words, it's worth reading just for that. But it's also her grounded "look on the bright side" perspective that will add a little lift to the day and may make you rethink things like work, winter and even waking up early. A little at a time, though, otherwise it gets a bit tiring.

Overall, instead of feeling like a forced smile, she comes across as a knowing grin.
