Elizabeth A.G. | 10 comments Started reading The Magnificent Ambersons today and finding it enjoyable, humorous and illuminating of a bygone era and the changes in society during this period. Love spoiled Georgie so far!

I can't wait to follow your thoughts!


Bryan--The Bee’s Knees (theindefatigablebertmcguinn) | 276 comments Okay--I found the thread! I feel like I better wait before committing absolutely, but this is something I definitely would like to get to. I feel I need to clear my plate a little bit first though.

No worries Bryan. Like I said, these threads stay open and members do come back and discuss when other members comment.

If you do read the book I'll look forward to your thoughts. 😊

Patrick (patrickofsylvania) | 13 comments I'm about 1/3 of the way in. Spoiled Georgie indeed! I'm really interested in hearing how this plays out.

I'm currently participating in a free online course sponsored by Yale called The Science of Well-Being. I'm fascinated by research on our happiness and the ways our brain tricks us into being unhappy.

I'm reminded of the course because I know Georgie's life is about to change. I'm curious to see who loses it and who says to themselves "things aren't as bad as we think."

Hi Loretta and Kelly, I think you can still enroll. We're just starting week 3 of 10. It charges $49 if you want a certificate. If not, the course is free.

Thanks for the information Patrick. I'm going to look into it!


Bryan--The Bee’s Knees (theindefatigablebertmcguinn) | 276 comments Finally started this today. Kind of an abrupt switch from what I've been reading lately, but I'll get used to it.
