Small Happies

Sometimes Happiness can come from the small things.
Since I can use some positive focusing, I'm going to spend some time noticing some little things that make me Very Happy!

Happiness

First up, a sunny day. A blanket, some comfy pillows and a good book.
Bliss!

I just finished up Wizard and Glass, the fourth book in Steven King's The Dark Tower series. I was underwhelmed by the first book, but got sucked right in when I pushed on with the second. I have flown through these first four in record time.
I've run a small snag in that I can't quite seem to find a copy of the next book in the series either in the library or in second-hand shops, but I'm sure that it will come eventually. So far I've heard that the following books aren't nearly as good as the ones I've already finished though, so perhaps it's best if I take a bit of a breather.

I'm currently reading Geisha of Gion: The Memoir of Mineko Iwasaki. I was intending to wait and begin it on April 23, the "official" start date of the readtheworld challenge (a reading challenge which aims to read books from as many different countries as possible in one year), but I had finished Wizard and Glass quicker then I anticipated and it was here and tempting! I even think I may finish this before Friday, too... But no matter, there are still many books from Japan that are on my To Be Read list!
