This cute little Sloth Philosophy book is not what I expected. I thought it was going to be a home book but this actually was more beneficial. It uses the sloth as a cute reminder to slow down and enjoy life. Lots of cute cartoon sloths.
In this context, the author beautifully builds the pathways of ‘sloth philosophy’ which I found to be ...more
I never expected to come across this sweet little book when I did a search via my library system for books about the Hygge lifestyle. If you are new to the term Hygge it is pronounced Hooga. You’d think they could just spell it that way to make it easier to remember! Ha!
Hygge is described as an ambiance as much as a state of mind based on Danish culture and design. Think chilly winter evening, candles lit, snuggled under a fuzzy ...more
The Reading Rush 2019 Book #11
I'm not huge on self-help books or motivational books or whatever but this little book full of the most adorable illustrations of sloths was amazing. It was slightly ironic, funny and ultimately it will remind you that it's okay to have a nap in a messy apartment instead of cleaning when you feel like it, to order a chinese takeaway instead of cooking when you don't have the energy and to put off all your messages and emails for days and days. Because none of thes ...more
Sloths spend most of their time in trees. They really prefer nature to people. And that's part of the reason they're so relaxed, probably.
Embrace the art of slow reading: But we're not encouraged to read slowly. We're urged to consume micro-news every other minute in order to stay informed. We learn to skim headlines, instead of reading whole articles. We're challenged to read 100 books a year and keep track of our success in this endeavour online. We're obsessed with productivity at ...more

It is indeed little—readable in about an hour. While I do enjoy a short book, it feels a bit too short and rushed at times. Like the sloth, I wish the points had been made a little slower, with more content on each topic. It is very cute, and the illustrations throughout are sweet.
The main concept is “be more sloth”. We learn some key sloth lessons thr ...more
I was hoping for some more in depth comparisons with a sloth life (because I like sloth, they are funny), but all I feel like the author was saying was: Do what you want, even if that means you do not work, get fired, smell bad ...more
