Today is the release of Gretchen Rubin's new book "Happier at Home"

Gretchen Rubin, New York Times best-selling author, has officially released her newest book, Happier at Home: kiss more, jump more, abandon a project, read Samuel Johnson, and my other experiments in the practice of everyday life. Rubin is most well-known for her previous book, The Happiness Project, in which she takes every month of an entire year to focus on a different resolution ranging from marriage to parenthood to work to simply having more energy on a day-to-day basis. As a former lawyer, Rubin approaches the never-ending questions about what it means to be happy in a logical and philosophical manner, while at the same time using Down-to-Earth examples from her everyday life that are hilarious yet honest, allowing all readers to relate to her theories on multiple levels.

If you're looking for a great read to start off this school year, Happier at Home is the perfect book to do so. In this follow up to The Happiness Project, Rubin takes a look at her “home life” from September through May, and reconsiders – again, with a new subject each month – how her nest can become a source of happiness within itself. Happier at Home is essentially the child of The Happiness Project, as it focuses in on home-related happiness factors such as “possessions, marriage, time, and parenthood.”
