    One Sunday afternoon, as she unloaded the dishwasher, Gretchen Rubin felt hit by a wave of homesickness. Homesick - why? She was standing right in her own kitchen. She felt homesick, she realized, with love for home itself. “Of all the elements of a happy life,” she thought, “my home is the most important.” In a flash, she decided to undertake a new happiness project, and this time, to focus on home. And what did she want from her home? A place that calmed her and energized her. A place that, by making her feel safe, would free her to take risks.

    Would you listen to Happier at Home again? Why?

    I think there are such fun and great systems in here. She has great ideas, and they are jumping off points to come up with what applies to you. Working on monthly themes is a great and do-able way to change things around in your life, and it's actually fun to break it down this way, and invent ideas for yourself.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way she lays it out. It's easy, accessible, and she has a nice personality. I went to Youtube and watched interviews with her after listening to the book, and she is such a likable person.

    In St. Petersburg, Russia, world chess champion Aleksandr Bezetov begins a quixotic quest. With his renowned Cold War–era tournaments behind him, Aleksandr has turned to politics, launching a dissident presidential campaign against Vladimir Putin. He knows he will not win - and that he is risking his life in the process - but a deeper conviction propels him forward. And in the same way that he cannot abandon his aims, he cannot erase the memory of a mysterious woman he loved in his youth.

    What did you love best about A Partial History of Lost Causes?

    The writing is beautiful, the story compelling.


    Have you listened to any of Kathe Mazur and Stephen Hoye ???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration is just right for the story. I have listened to these narrators before, and think they are always good.
