With more than 1.5 million copies in print, 14,000 Things to Be Happy About is the iconic impulse gift book that celebrates all the little things that make life worth living. Now it is even more of a mood-altering pick-me-up, with the use of cheerful watercolors throughout plus redesigned pages, all of which give this new edition a fresh, joyous feeling. At the heart, though, is its unique list of thousands of items, places, thoughts, and moments that make us happy. No opinions, no explanations, no asides or footnotes. It’s mesmerizing. And as an antidote to the all-too-many things to be unhappy about, it could not be more welcome.

a sweet tooth
twirling a baton
driving as you wish your kids would
artistic license
an express lane
reaching a compromise
ripe peaches on a summer's eve
dinner rolls
playing in autumn leaves

A unique way to unplug, relax, reminisce, practice gratitude, and change your mood to an upbeat and happy one! 

(The book cover and interior were updated with a new color design in September 2023; some customers may receive an earlier version of the book.)
