A Short Guide to A Happy Life by Anna Quindlen

I like Anna Quindlen but all I could think in the fifteen minutes that it took me to read this book was, "She must have needed a little quick cash." This is basically a be thankful for life pep talk, perhaps an old commencement address she gave, spread out over fifty or so pages with about half of those pages devoted to greeting card style sentimental pictures. Really. It would be good in a guest bedroom because it is such a quick read, if only I had a guest bedroom!

I used to love her NY Times column (Life in the Thirties, I think it was called), but I haven't liked her books as much.

I just finished "Rise and Shine." It was okay, but I do like her better as an essayist.
