1,033 Reasons To Smile {book} Review and Giveaway

It's been one of those weeks where I really needed a reason to be happy or smile. Luckily, I now have 1,033 of them!

About the Author
Elizabeth Dutton is an expert in smiling, as she does so quite often. A Californian who has found refuge in the South, she has a couple degrees from a couple of schools, and writes constantly, which also makes her smile.

1,033 Reasons To Smile has to be the cutest book I've ever read. Every reason holds some kind of truth and made me giggle, if not outright chuckle. Don't believe me? Take a sneak peek at some of these:

No matter what you do, you are probably not as bad as Hitler. Smile! You aren't as terrible as a murderous dictator!
Parents meeting their kids at the school bus. All-American smile.
Seeing rolling papers in the kitchen drawer at your grandmother's house. Granny's a toker. Good for her.
 See what I mean? Who can't help but smile at these? And there's over a thousand more to read! This book is staying on my coffee table. And those of you who are subscribed to my Facebook page, beware of the random smiley quote.

I would highly recommend anyone to buy this book, but to make it a little more fun, the publisher has offered to give one away! Please remember to include your email address in each entry.
