Happy Books

The so-called "happy" books are collections of favorite Facebook postings. The books were created after so many people asked for them. They are meant to offer comfort and joy. Judging by how many people keep them by their bedsides, they seem to do just that. Perfect hostess gifts! 

Make Someone Happy

Make Someone Happy

Self-Published - July, 2016

What's it About?

This is a collection of favorite blog entries and postings. It's to, as one person said, "take on an airplane, or to bed." And as another person said, it's a great gift.

What was the inspiration?

This was created after so many people on my Facebook page asked for it!

A random quote from the book

We walked to the playground and the dusk deepened and then the lights came on in houses and on the passing cars and there you go, another day was done. If there is one thing I know about my life, it is that there will never be enough time given over to the glory of nature simply being itself in extraordinary ways, and to the beauty and poignancy of time passing.

What's it About?

Still Happy is Elizabeth’s second collection of Facebook posts. Her first, Make Someone Happy, did indeed make many people happy, and so, due to popular demand, she has put together a second volume, which includes “The Book of Homer,” a tribute to her beloved dog who recently died. Still Happy, like Make Someone Happy, exemplifies Berg’s gift, as the Boston Globe said, “in her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the remarkable in the everyday.”

A random quote from the book

"You know, Homer, " I said. "When you go, you are going to be able to run again. And chase balls. And swim in the waters of a big, wide lake." And he said, "If you have to believe that, it's fine. Maybe it's even true. But I am lying beside you now, and I am glad to hear your human breath going in and out of your body and I am becalmed by the love you are offering me and I am all right, I am all right, I am all right."

A random quote from the book

When I was attending Weight Watcher meetings, I used to like the true confessions part. My favorite time was when someone said that there was chocolate cake sitting on her kitchen counter when she got up in the morning and she threw it in the garbage. Everyone cheered. But then she said, all small-voiced, "But then I pulled it out and ate it." I cheered.

The Happy books should be purchased on Amazon or ordered from your independent bookseller.
