The Happiness Project

by Gretchen Rubin

One rainy afternoon, while riding a city bus, Gretchen Rubin asked herself, "What do I want from life, anyway?"  She answered, "I want to be happy" - yet she spent no time thinking about her happiness.  In a flash, she decided to dedicate a year to a happiness project.  The result? One of the most thoughtful and engaging works on happiness to have emerged from the recent explosion of interest in the subject.

The Happiness Project synthesizes the wisdom of the ages with current scientific research, as Rubins brings readers along on her year to greater happiness.

The book has been a blockbuster bestseller.  It spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list, including hitting #1, sold more than 1.5 million copies, and has been published in more than 30 languages.

Books are available at both library branches.

Adults ages 18 and up.

A Spool of Blue Thread

by Anne Tyler

The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate togetherness: an indefinable, enviable kind of specialness.  But they are also like all families, in that the stories they tell themselves reveal only part of the picture.  Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets.  From Red's father and mother, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red's grandchildren carrying the family legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century, here are four generations of Whitshanks, their lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn Baltimore house that has always been their anchor.

Books are available at both library branches.

Adults ages 18 and up.
