About FORGETTING AUGUST

She can forgive, but can she forget?

The Giving Way to Happiness Blitz: How I Give

In celebration of Thanksgiving weekend and the beginning of the holiday season, I’m happy to showcase a book all about giving and share with you guys my favorite (bookish) way to give back!
About THE GIVING WAY TO HAPPINESS:
We often focus on how our gifts can help those in need. But the act of giving actually improves our own lives as well. In The Giving Way to Happiness, Jenny Santi overturns conventional thinking about what it takes to be happy by revealing how giving to others—whether in the form of money, expertise, time, or love—has helped people from all walks of life find purpose and joy. Drawing on the wisdom of great thinkers past and present, as well as cutting-edge scientific research, Santi makes an eloquent and passionate case that oftentimes the answers to the problems that haunt us, and the key to the happiness that eludes us, lie in helping those around us.
