Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

I did not think I would find this book so useful! I do a lot of the methods listed in the book,but I have the wrong system. I love the idea of cleaning by category type,not by room.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

  • A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Working from home on the Web is a dream that resides in the hearts of millions of people across the world. But, it's also a dream that's realized by only a small percentage of the population. That's because most people simply don't know where to turn when it comes to working on the Web. They get sucked into one get-rich-quick scheme after another. They chase empty promises and live unfulfilled lives as their once vivid dreams of working for themselves slip further and further away.

91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Infact, I have already got my family reading this as well! This book is so perfect, I am nearly speechless right now as I keep replaying the book over-and-over in my head. After reading this book nearly 24 hours ago, I still feel so many emotions and cannot stop thinking about the characters and want to read it again!

What did you like best about this story?

As always, Nicholas Sparks continues to surprise me with his talent. He is simply amazing!

This book really makes you feel like you know these characters and you are right there in the book with them. The love each couple has for one another is truly amazing and inspiring.

I haven't been this emotional over a book since The Notebook! It is a MUST READ!

Any additional comments?

It is very hard to find the right words to describe how much I am in love with this book. My advice, READ IT!
