I just purchased the 5 yr journal that goes along with it - due to arrive and can't wait to dive into it. Guess this would be a good reason to go ahead and get the book too! :-)

I got the book on my Kindle and started reading tonight. I'm partway through January and this lady is SERIOUSLY stepping on my toes.

I mean, really.

...I'm even headed to finish cleaning out my closet (a task I started a couple of weeks ago).

I know! I got up last night from my reading and cleaned out a bathroom closet. I had to have an empty shelf, too... :blush:

It's a great book.

The February chapter is a little harder for me to click with right now.

The topic of Marriage isn't really where I'm at right now- I don't have a husband for this chapter. I think a few of her ideas there are a bit strange or antiquated, but maybe it's just how she's worded it. I did find a lot of tips for fighting fair that help in my household, though-- after all, who doesn't need help in fighting fair?

I'm enjoying the book so far, for the most part. She and I have disagreed on a few points, but for the most part, I'm tracking with it.

Oh. And she grew up in KC and comes and visits her family here a couple of times a year... cool!

Started this last night and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'm just getting into April now. She's really making me feel bad and I want to clean out closets and be extra nice to my DH now. I even bought baskets while I was at Wal-Mart tonight to organize the medicine cabinet.

I wanted to get this book last week, I forget to check in and see what the book club book was, lol! I need to go to the library this week anyway, maybe I'll see if it's available. I'd love to read it on my kindle but I'm not spending $10 for it.

I'm about 50% through and I am really loving it. I find myself making notes on passages in the Kindle, which I never do. I'm really interested to see how December comes together for her.

I feel like a slacker- I'm still trekking through March. It's a good book, but I'm trying to find time. Lol, it seems every time I pick up the book, I put it down to go work on something. So far I've cleaned my closet a bit, worked on my bathroom, and cleaned a good chunk of our kitchen cabinets last night. Then, I was reading about the blogging and decided "Oh, I haven't blogged in a couple of days," so went and did that... I need to keep my attention span in check.

I thought that this was such an interesting book. Last year, I participated in scrappingelated Happiness Project blog hop where we tackled her topics month by month. It was lots of fun. I had borrowed it from the library, but just purchased it on my Kindle. I'm going to reread and catch up with you guys.

I am just getting into it - just finishing January. I also have the urge to clean. LOL

I am finding some of it a little "textbook-ish", if you know what I mean. Too many stats and facts...not enough story.

I also disagree a little bit with her "happiness is the reason for living" theory...although I don't disagree with wanting to be happy! An interesting read so far..

I'm almost finished - on November. I do like it, but after about April it got harder for me to read. I still enjoyed it, but as her ideas differed more from mine it was harder to stick with it.

Libraries can be such a pain sometimes. I was making a huge dent in this book and was really getting into it when I had to return it because it was on hold for someone. Putting myself back on the hold list so I can finish it.

I'm all for continuing it - I've only read a couple chapters because I read twilight for another book club and then ended up reading the other 3 books in that series too instead. I do want to still finish this!

same here. I didn't get as far, because by the time I got the book I was trying to finish another book. Turns out there were over 30 people with that book on the Kindle waiting list, so I ended up waiting for it on the regular library's hard book list for a bit. So I'm still on January....

Wow. I am having the hardest time concentrating on this book! It has given me a lot to think about so far, but for some reason I just haven't been able to get into it very well and find myself having to almost force myself to read it, lol.

I finished the book, but I must say my interest waned when she started getting into friendships in June. I think it was at that point that her approach started turning me off. After that I only half-heartedly read the book, though my interest picked up a little during the September chapter.
