"Mom, you've got to get this book! You will LOVE it!" my oldest daughter exclaimed over the phone. Her dear husband recently got her a Kindle, and she and I have been swapping great titles, sharing stories of good - and bad - reads.
I wasn't real fond of her previous recommendation, but I think it's just me (I'm a bit odd when it comes to reading material), so I was a little unsure of this one. Once I downloaded How To Live On Twenty-Four Hours a Day, and began to read it, however, I found it to be a really interesting, as well as helpful book.
The setting is in the mid 1800s, so some of the examples are quite far-fetched (and of course it was written for the working man, not for the homeschooling mom), but the principles are timeless. So far, I have had a lot of food for thought from this little gem. In fact, since implementing some of the changes in my life, I've accomplished more with less effort. This I thought to be impossible, since my days are extremely packed, but if it could help me, it can probably help you.
