Blue Day

I received in the mail today a copy of The Blue Day Book: A Lesson in Cheering Yourself Up from one of my BookCrossing friends and it really made my day.

I've been feeling very blue today and this little book with its short sentences and wonderful pictures made me both laugh and cry. I just can't thank her enough for this little pick me up.

Some times the smallest things can have the biggest impact. Know what I mean?

Little surprises are the best! I recommend you check out the other books by the same author - they're all in the same style and equally funny/touching. :)
