Raising Happiness

 

Join the Summer Book Club

June 23, 2010 | Book Club | 0 comments

Read Raising Happiness – the book! – with BookSnob’s Katy Keim.

This summer, as we try to unplug a bit, I’m hoping to do a bit more reading.  If you were thinking of reading my book Raising Happiness this summer, I welcome you to join our summer book club, run by Katy Keim of BookSnob.

This book club commentary and discussion first ran on Motherese, so you might want to check out the comments there, or Motherese blogger Kristen’s weekly posts related to the book club.  Here’s how we’ll be hosting the club: Each Thursday, we’ll post Katy’s review of the week’s chapter, followed by a discussion question or two. 

Even if you aren’t reading along, we hope you’ll join the conversation by responding to the postings.  What came to mind as you read the chapter being discussed, or Katy’s review?  You can subscribe to the comments thread for each posting and jump in.

Starting next week, we’ll discuss Chapter 1, then go from there, one chapter per week. This might seem like a pretty slow way to get through a book this summer, but Raising Happiness really isn’t one of those books that is meant to be read and acted on all at once.  Better to discuss one concept at a time. 

Next week at this time, we’ll get started.  So head to your local library and check out a copy of Raising Happiness, or buy a copy here and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Greater Good Science Center.
