Continuing on my theme of self help/lifestyle type books, I read the above three.
Cosy: The British Art of Comfort by Laura Weir was just a charming read. It was everything comforting wrapped up in the pages of a book. I’d highly recommend to anyone who is stressing in their stay at home environment.
The Nordic Guide to Living 10 Years Longer was not particularly Nordic. It was really just basic health guidelines, eat better, sleep better, brush and floss your teeth, move your body, etc. It was a fine read but just not anything very new or even very particular to Nordic countries.
Sisu was a really good read. I read this after reading Katja Pantzer’s book about Sisu, which was a more personal story, almost memoir-ish with some interviews and science. I really enjoyed that book about finding Sisu and so read this one. Joanna Nylund’s Sisu is more focused on applications to the reader rather than telling a story and I really found it quite interesting. There are definitely passages I will go back and read again, especially the ones related to work life and communication.
