Danish Secrets to Happy Living

A partial synopsis from Bas Bleu: Hygge has been called everything from "the art of creating intimacy," "coziness of the soul" and "the absence of annoyance" to "taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things," "cozy togetherness" and, my personal favorite, "cocoa by candlelight."
My thoughts: So, to begin Hygge is pronounced "hoo-ga". You're welcome! That was my first question, too. ;-) What a fascinating little book! It begins by defining what "hygge" is. As chapters move along though, there are tips and suggestions on how to create "cozy togetherness" in your home as well as your place of work. I especially enjoyed the recipe section. This one is a pretty quick read and one that I would definitely recommend.
