    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.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Happier at Home to be better than the print version?

    Although I have both happiness books in print, I own them both on audible. I love listening to the books many times because it really helps solidify things for me. Whenever I do not have an audio book, I turn on Grethchen';s books again even though I have already listened to them many times. I feel like I am talking with a friend.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love how honest Gretchen is about how she feels as she goes through her daily life.


    What about Kathe Mazur’s performance did you like?

    I like the simplicity of her voice. It is clear and easily understood. This is not a book to be done with drama and she is a perfect reader for this.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt like the book was written to me. Gretchen's first book helped me a lot and helped me look at things in new ways. This book hits things right on the head and really put me in my place.


    Any additional comments?

    I read a lot and for a book to give me new ideas that I had not though of before is saying a lot.
