The Book of Ques­tions

by gre­gory Stock ph.d. “What could some­one fig­ure out about

you by the friends you’ve cho­sen?” A book filled with noth­ing but ques­tions might seem silly, but an­swer­ing one truth­fully might make you want to con­tem­plate on the next one, and the next one, and the one af­ter that. It’s a great tool for self-dis­cov­ery. No one is dol­ing out lessons—you fig­ure it out on your own. Feel­ing brave? Dare to ask your part­ner or your best friend the same ques­tions. P379, Na­tional Book Store The hap­pi­ness Code by domonique Ber­tolucci

P495, Na­tional Book Store The HAPPY Life CHECK­LIST

by Amy Spencer “Sing along to the store sound­track.” When was the last time you saw life through kid-col­ored lenses? If you have no idea how to do that any­more, this book gives you tons of in­spi­ra­tion for find­ing courage and con­fi­dence for a bliss­ful life. Most are sim­ple enough to ac­com­plish, you’ll find your­self eas­ily

tick­ing the check boxes. But you shouldn’t feel pres­sured to do them all—just do what­ever feels right at the

mo­ment. P599, Power­books

“To­day sounds so much bet­ter

than some­day.” Do you like to save or re­post quotes in

beau­ti­ful graph­ics and let­ter­ing on In­sta­gram? Here’s the book version with at least 200 pages of quotes to in­spire, mo­ti­vate, and en­cour­age. There are also ran­dom facts (“Beau­ti­ful Bridges in the World”) and quirky ac­tiv­i­ties (“How to Yo­del”) that really don’t do any­thing

ex­cept… make you smile. “No mat­ter how much you care about some­one, you can’t take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their hap­pi­ness.” En­dur­ing hap­pi­ness is not a re­sult of the things you’ve done, but the per­son you’ve cho­sen to be. With 10 guid­ing prin­ci­ples, the book teaches you how to take charge of your life, with tips cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from be­com­ing a per­son who chooses hap­pi­ness to let­ting go of your in­ner con­trol freak. “Make some­thing with your hands. Al­low your­self to learn and fail, and don’t seek

the an­swers on the In­ter­net.” Yes, this is about go­ing on a dig­i­tal detox, but it doesn’t re­quire you to go cold tur­key. Each page has a mis­sion that en­cour­ages you to soak up your sur­round­ings and make phys­i­cal con­nec­tions. To gen­tly force you to do the tasks, there’s a “Com­pleted On” and “Re­flect” space at the bot­tom of each
