The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

In the usual vein of “the year of” books (like this and this ), the author of The Happiness Project undertakes a year of self-improvement to become happier. Actually it’s more a year of self-improvement, period, since she seems to focus as much on cleaning her closets (a great source of happiness for weirdos like me, certainly), starting a blog, and remembering her friends’ birthdays as on more ambitious pursuits of writing gratitude journals or taking time to be silly. Clearly she is a very structured person so her progress needs to be measurable and methodical, which makes for a fun read, if slightly cringe-inducing as the view into her family and her marriage seems occasionally too close.
