The Gratitude Project

It’s been a while since I shared a book review here, though I’ve been doing a lot of reading and reviewing. (In case you are interested, my reviews of fiction can be found at my other website). As you might have realized, I’m slowly attempting to get back into regular features on this site – #MondayMusings is back and now you’ll see a lot more book reviews and other features back too. With Thanksgiving just two days away, it was only fitting that I restart the reviews with the topic of gratitude – and so here I am with my

The Gratitude Diaries

It’s time for our monthly Gratitude Circle post and for a moment, I wondered if I would run out of things to write about. Why, you wonder? Because I’ve been linking in to the Ten Things of Thankful linky over the last few Saturdays and covered quite a list in my posts during the month : Thankful Seeds and The Quiet Joy of Gratitude. However, I decided to share my list and review The Gratitude Diaries too. But there’s always something more to be grateful for, isn’t there? So here’s my list for the week.

The Grateful Life

It’s time for our Gratitude Circle for January and I’ve decided to share with you about a book I came across that certainly helps to put gratitude in perspective for me. I love the title of the book because I think that if there’s one thing that defines my life today, it is gratitude. I am living the grateful life! The Grateful Life: The Secret to Happiness, and the Science of Contentment  is a guide to discovering—and realizing—one’s dreams though a positive attitude. Through years of research and practice, authors Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons have discovered that grateful living

The Wonder of Books

A device for reading on the go, portable, unlimited operating time, no battery worries, wireless, cheap. Yes, it is a book   ~ Times Online UK I cannot but give thanks for the wonder of books in my life. Books have always meant a lot to me. They’ve been prized possessions and when I had to move to Mumbai post-marriage, I told my then husband-to-be that he better make plenty of space for my books. Thankfully, he’s a book lover too and had a big collection himself. So when we were renovating our home we created a fairly large space
