I recently listened to The Fault in Our Stars in audio book format while driving to the beach. Audio Books are a great option for readers on the go. You can listen to them in the car, during a run or when you’re doing chores around the house. If you just don’t have the time to sit down with a book, audio books are the way to go.

Happy to Let it Go By Lora-Lynn Kahler
The song Happy seems to be everywhere—that and Let it Go. In the car, in the store, on TV, being sung by my neighbor’s children the music just lingers. And once it hits, it sticks becoming run and rerun in my head over and over and over…. To combat this most recent attack of I’d be happy to let it go, I thought it might be fun to see what our libraries have available about happiness and letting go.
30 lessons for living: tried and true advice from the wisest Americans, by Karl Pillemer, shares the wisdom of older people on how to choose happiness and life without regret. We’ve got this one as an eBook and in large print too, it’s that good.
I love the title of this one: The antidote: happiness for people who can't stand positive thinking by Oliver Burkeman. This book can help out if you are just trying too hard to be happy.
We have a nice devotional calendar in print and as an eBook: The language of letting go by Melody Beattie. 52 small changes: one year to a happier, healthier you makes the idea of becoming happy attainable one week at a time. And if you are raising a teen you might like, Letting go with love and confidence: raising responsible, resilient, self-sufficient teens in the 21st century.
On the work front, the Dali Lama offers guidance on The art of happiness at work. Happiness at work: be resilient, motivated, and successful--no matter what is available as an eBook. We also have a new audiobook with guided mediations called Real happiness at work: meditations for accomplishment, achievement, and peace that you might enjoy.
We recently added a new Chicken Soup for the Soul title Home Sweet Home: 101 Stories About Hearth, Happiness, and Hard Work. Why not be among the first to read it? Go ahead and request it for yourself and we’ll email you as soon as the book is ready.
So the next time either Happy or Let it Go gets stuck in your head, chase it away with one of these reads instead.

The Pelican Bride by Beth White
If you are a fan of inspirational or Christian fiction, pick up The Pelican Bride. Genevieve and her sister need to escape France and religious persecution. Put aboard the Pelican, the sisters are sailing to the New World to find not only freedom but, husbands. Once Genevieve arrives in Louisiana she finds that the New World isn’t what she pictured and finding a husband amongst the rough Canadian soldiers won’t be as easy as she and her sister thought. Set in 1704 Louisiana, The Pelican Bride is rich with history, romance, and heroism. I enjoyed Beth White’s style of writing and found her use of local history intriguing. She melded the life of the Native American people and the Canadian settlers into an intricate story. I thought that Genevieve was a strong female character and admired her heroics throughout the book. The Pelican Bride is a story of life, love, and overcoming the odds.
