Book Blog- Book of Awesome

The Chapters.Indigo website gives the description that The Book of Awesome presents simple pleasures for a younger, hipper generation. WRONG! The Book of Awesome presents simple pleasures for EVERYONE. It's a book that makes you actually chuckle and laugh out loud, that makes your day juuuusstttt a little bit brighter. Every single person could relate to alot of, if not all of the things in this book and I found myself internally agreeing with alot of these little surprises that make you smile.
Example: #511: The moment on vacation when you forget what day of the week it is.

Since it's Christmas, I found a few that will be done during the holidays:
#350: Just barely wrapping a gift with that tiny scrap of leftover wrapping paper
#455: Digging a hole in your mashed potatoes and filling it up with gravy-- I do else are you suppose to keep all the gravy ON the potatoes?!
#867: Snow falling on Christmas Eve
#971: Real bearded Santas-- now THAT is dedication to the profession

We all lead busy and hectic lives and we overlook and don't appreciate things that happen to us. This book will make you truly appreciate the little things in life that bring just a tiny bit of happiness with them.

#718: When you sneeze and a stranger says bless you
#936: Perfect parallel parking on the first try
#908: Peeling an orange in one shot
#622: When the dog's really excited you're back home--this happens to me even if I leave the house for 30 seconds, but it's nice to know someone's always happy to see me.

The Book of Awesome can be a miniscule pick me up for everyone and anyone who reads it. That little slice of sunshine that lasts for 5 minutes on a rainy day. Enjoy it, and the treasures it offers you :)
