Proper preparation is the key to our success. Our acts can be no wiser than our thoughts. Our thinking can be no wiser than our understanding...

Denmark is often said to be the world's happiest country. They have equal parental leave for men and women, free higher education and trains that run on time. . Nobody knows more about happiness - what the Danes call lykke - than Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen and author of the The Little Book of Hygge. But he believes that, whilst we can certainly learn a lot from the Danes about finding fulfilment, the keys to happiness are actually buried all around the globe. . In his new book, The Little Book of Lykke, he takes us on a treasure hunt to unlock the doors to inner fulfilment. From how we spend our precious time, to how we relate to our neighbours and cook dinner, he gathers evidence, stories and tips from the very happiest corners of the planet. This is the ultimate guide to how we can all find a little more lykke in our lives. . Do you have any tips on finding moments of happiness in your daily life? Leave them in the comments...

Are you a spine cracker? I don't mind whether I crack the spines of my books - I don't actively do it but if it happens it happens! Speaking of spines...these are the spines to my Harry Potter editions I showed you a week or so ago. I love the illustrations of the characters!

••| the truth is, not all of us are ready for deeper connections. not all of us are ready for all the pieces that come with being involved with someone romantically. that's not to say we will never be ready, but sometimes we have to cultivate within before we can plunge into someone else's soul. there's no rush, there's no perfect timing, there's nothing you're missing out on, if everything isn't right within. do the soul work, understand yourself better, give yourself time, and be ready when the moment presents itself. ✨

С моим отношением к книгам, как сейчас, в школе я считалась бы ботанкой 🤓и со мной никто бы не дружил👋🏼. "Всему свое время", -сказала "жіночка" на опыте👌🏽Это я сейчас лучше почитаю, чем в местные клубцы пойду (хотя те, кому за 20 с хвостиком помнят хорошенько наше тусовочное прошлое💃🏽🍹🍾🥂🍷🍸🥃🎊🎉🚬🚽), лучше без мейка похожу, лучше волосы перестану красить, которые с 15 в чернющий красила, лучше в кроссовочках побегаю, чем на каблах измучаюсь. 😅 Модно быть умной и натуральной. 😉 Я поддерживаю эту "струю". А вы? #library #books #vscoukraine #vscoua #chernivtsi

The secret of the bookstagrammer is revealed: the mug is usually empty 🙊 . What is your your most embarrassing bookstagramming secret when taking photos? . My mugs are always empty unless you see the contents, my tea is never hot and most of the times I don't even boil the water (it's just hot enough so the leaves infuse some colour), AND just think about sock sunday or sockless sunday posts and what's the quickest way to take those photos. I'll let you jump to all the conclusions. . Now tell me your secret 🔥 . . #bookster #books #bookstagram #bookish #booklover #booknerd #bookquotes #quotestoliveby #quoteoftheday #bibliophile #bookcover #bookworm #vsco #vscocam #IReadYA #bookblogger #youngadult #vscogood #books #instagood #instabook #bookstagramfeature #photoftheday #bookishfeatures #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #instabooks #culturetripbooks #igreads #onthebed #flatlay

[Женские английские романы: где романтика, а где скука?] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Сколько признаний в любви, бабочек в животе и поцелуев под дождем должно быть в книге, чтобы ее признали достаточно романтичной? Где тонкая грань между удачной дозировкой чувств и их переизбытком? Точного ответа никто не даст. Я бы выдвинула теорию, что у каждого свой приемник со своими частотами. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Сегодня я хотела бы затронуть две книги - «Север и Юг» и «Гордость и предубеждение». Если вторую все обожают, то первую частенько называют скучной, в то время как для меня это настоящий взрыв невысказанных чувств, выразительных взглядов и искренней любви. И мистер Торнтон, настоящий мужчина, который сделал себя сам (в отличие от того же Дарси), несомненно мой фаворит. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ А какие английские романы вам кажутся скучными, а какие наоборот - безумно романтичными?

Wiecie, że dzisiaj Stephen King obchodzi swoje siedemdziesiąte urodziny? Jako nastolatka czytałam nocami mnóstwo jego książek, szczelnie owinięta kołdrą ze strachu, a szczególnym sentymentem darzę "Miasteczko Salem" i "Lśnienie", od których to wszystko się zaczęło 😉 Regularnie sięgam po kolejne książki z bogatego dorobku autora - prawdziwego mistrza w swoim fachu! 🙂 "To" jest jednak dalej przede mną, zarówno w wersji książkowej, jak i filmowej. Znajomi zapewniają, że to tylko lekko niepokojący dreszczowiec, ale ze mnie straszny cykor, a już sama obecność klauna zwiastuje prawdziwy horror 😱😉 Też tak macie? Udanego wieczoru, trzymajcie się ciepło! #book #books #książki #bookstagram #bookstagrampl #instabook #instagramczyta #igreads #read #reading #culturetripbooks #bookphotography #booksofinstagram #bookworm #booklover #booknerd #bookaddict #bookstagramfeature #czytam #takczytam #stephenking #czytambolubie #kochamczytać #czytaniejestsexy #czytaniejestfajne #kawa #coffee #cozy

*Susan Sontag Giveaway* ll I’ve been posting Susan Sontag’s Journals & Notebooks here and there on my stories and account for the past few weeks now. I’ve read On Photography last year and started Regarding the Pain of Others but had to put it on hold for a few months. I’ve been meaning to read Sontag’s other essays but I knew I would have to find a time where I can sit down and focus. She is just one of those writers where you need to really work for it. Sontag is probably the only writer where I've had to mark the book since college. Confession: I haven’t marked any of my books except Sontag (and... wait Anne Carson!!) since college. After college, I needed a break from analyzing every single book and essay so I’ve gotten accustomed to just reading the book without marking it. I actually was able to absorb the text better that way because I wasn’t going back and forth trying to underline and analyze every single word but then again, some books and essays need to be marked and torn apart and analyzed to understand better. ✨ Two readers will win a set of the two journals, Reborn and As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh. One reader will win a set of the essays including On Photography, Against Interpretation and Other Essays, Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors, and Regarding the Pain of Others. Good luck! ✨ RULES TO ENTER (Open to U.S. residents only)🌟 You must be following @picador and @herpickings, “like” this photo, and tag a friend you’d like to discuss these books with. Also, out of genuine curiosity - what is your all-time favorite essay (or essays if you can't choose!)? 🌙 The giveaway will officially end on Sunday September 24, 2017 @ 11AM PST. 3 winners will be randomly chosen with a number generator and announced on this post. Good luck!

Eines der besten Bücher der Saison: #leilaslimani - #dannschlafauchdu ( #chansondouce) erschienen bei Luchterhand und Gewinner des #prixgoncourt. "Das Baby ist tot." So schockierend beginnt dieser Roman - Louise, die Nanny, hat es getötet - wenig später erliegt auch das andere Kind von Myriam und Paul seinen Verletzungen - wie es dazu kam, wie Louise sich nach und nach immer mehr in das Leben des jungen, gut situierten Paares geschlichen hat, sich unentbehrlich gemacht hat wird nun in Rückblenden und anhand von verschiedenen Zeugenaussagen geschildert. Atemlos und fassungslos ließt man die folgenden 200 Seiten und taucht ein in die Abgründe einer einsamen, sehr einsamen und versehrten Frau. Gänsehaut. Doch dies ist nur ein Aspekt - das Buch geht tiefer und funktioniert auf vielen Ebenen - nicht nur das Psychogramm, die alte Geschichte vom Bösen, welches man bereitwillig in seine eigenen vier Wände lässt, das schleichende Grauen, dass langsam den Nacken hinaufkriecht (das Hähnchen auf dem Bild musste sein - wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird mich verstehen - spielt es doch in einer der verstörendsten Szene eine große Rolle) funktioniert großartig - nein es ist auch gleichzeitig eine ätzende Satire auf unsere moderne Wohlstandsgesellschaft und auf soziale Missstände. Wie das moderne, studierte Paar mit seinem Status hadert, wie es voller Unsicherheit auf die Mary Poppins reagiert, die das Leben der glücklichen Fanilie immer mehr unter ihre Kontrolle bringt ist wunderbar geschildert - jedoch bleibt dem Leser irgendwann das Lachen im Halse stecken - doch da ist es längst zu spät, die Dinge sind längst außer Kontrolle geraten und zu oft haben wir "die andere Seite" gesehen, die der gestrandeten Seelen, der Existenzen, die mehr vegetieren als existieren. Slimani meistert all dies grandios, weil Sie nicht wertet. Am Ende muss der Leser selbst Stellung beziehen - und das ist vielleicht der härteste Brocken des ganzen Buches. Lesen! #igreads #bookishfeatures #bookphotography #love #book #books #bookstagram #bookporn #follow #like #buchnerd #reader #literature #instareads #classic #bookstagrammer #bookish #bibliophile #literaturefrançaise #chicken #psycho

There's Someone Inside Your House... and it's not cute little ferrets! . . Stephanie Perkins has been a favorite author of mine since I first picked up Anna and the French Kids the year it came out. I love watching the relationships she writes about grow on the pages, and of course I love the kissing scenes! For the longest time she mentioned the story she was aching to write, a teen slasher thriller, and I can't believe I was lucky enough to have a dear friend ( @fictiontea ) send me an arc of one of my most anticipated books of the year! I'm not normally a thriller reader, but I loved everything about this book. It comes out in less than a week and I can't wait for more of you to read it!! 💖 . . What's your favorite autumn/Halloween read? 🍂💬 . . . #thebookferret #books #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookpets #bookaddict #bookphotography #bibliophile #instabooks #ferret #instaferret #ferretsofinstagram #petsofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #theressomeoneinsideyourhouse #stephanieperkins #quigley #digglebear #ferrets #bookrecommendations

Korkarım ki; her organın dile geldiği günde en çok hesabı kalp sorar bize. Ne gerek vardı ki onu bu kadar yıpratmaya? Yıprattık. Her gelende Gül gibi açılan kalp, her gidenin ardından bir parça daha eksildi. Bahtına düşen dikendi. Dünyanın gamını omuzlar değil, kalp yüklendi. Acır mı, acıyor işte... Sözlüğünden geriye ne kaldı ki? Gömlekler önden, kalplerin örtüsü de en derinden yırtıldı işte. Ve yalancı çıktık kalbimize. Sesini duyamayışımız mahcup etti bizi ona. Ihtiyarlaşır mı, ihtiyarlaştı işte... . Selam olsun kalbine haksızlık ettiğini fark edip, onu tekrardan ait olduğu dergâha yönlendirene..Îman ile süsleyene ✋ @emineaydin__ . . . . . . . #şiir #söz #kalp #dua #istanbul #kitap #kitapkokusu #edebiyat #emineaydin #edebiyatkulübü #istanbuldayasam #kitaplariyikivar #book #books

Having finished all of the books in both of @lbardugo's Grishaverse series, I can say with supreme confidence that I. Need. More. More Grisha. More Kaz. More heists. More heart wrenching romance. More magicical Bardugo prose. I need more of all of it. I feel like there's still so much to discover about this world. The release of The Languge of Thorns will sate a little of my Grisha thirst, but I want another full blown trilogy to really gulp down! Anyone else agree?? #sixofcrows #shadowandbone #grisha
