Comfort Living

Title: Comfort Living
Author: Christine Eisner
Genre: Non-fiction
Page Count: 84
Why I read it: Received review copy from the publisher
Grade: B

With simple tools and do-able steps, Comfort Living will guide you in creating a home that transforms the way you experience each day. No big investment of time or money is required. Filled with exercises, ToolBoxes, photographs and planning pages, this book becomes a personalized experience for each reader, customized to individual needs and wants, much like a wedding planner or baby book. Just as comfort food does more than satisfy hunger, Comfort Living realigns your surroundings so that they support your priorities and feed your soul.

My review:
This was a fairly short, straightforward book about simple ways that you can make your home more comfortable and inviting.  A lot of it centered around "campfires" or different comfort areas that you could make within your home.  This might be a reading nook, your dining room table, your entryway--you figure out a place that's important to you, and then make it your own.

There was a lot of useful advice packed into this little book.  The chapters are divided into weeks, and there are eight of them, so it's meant to be done one week at a time.  There is planning areas, places to take notes, little assignments for you to do each week, etc.  I really liked some of the ideas in this book, and will implement them in my home.
