Happy Books: Inspirational Reads To Make You Smile

Posted: Updated:

Call us bibliophiles if you must, but virtually all books make us smile. We love getting lost on an intricate journey, connecting with a character on an emotional level and using the parts of our brain that, otherwise, are under-stimulated.

Below is a list of 10 books that lift the spirits. What are we missing? What book puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step? Share your happy reads in the comments section below.
