“Joy in Every Moment” by Tsivia Gover is, predictably, a joy to read — for much longer than a moment. It reminds me of years ago when I used to enjoy books by Alexandra Stoddard about creating a beautiful life, but it has a much more practical, action-oriented bent. The subtitle of the book is “Mindful Exercises for Waking to the Wonders of Ordinary Life” and it doesn’t disappoint. The book is a series of bite-sized nuggets of wisdom with specific things that you can do to improve the quality of your life. You’ll need a little packet of post-it flags for this one!
For me, the size of a book really matters; I do most of my reading in bed at night, and I love a book that’s cozy and tactile and a joy to actually read. This one is 6×7, wonderfully typeset, and full of beautiful purples and pinks and colorful illustrations. It’s a great companion to have at the bedside, or to look through over the first cup of coffee in the morning.
