Book Review – The Joy of Less

41GAGRV4huL._SX373_BO1,204,203,200_Having been a big fan of Marie Kondo’s ‘The life-changing magic of tidying’ I was intrigued by Jay’s minimalist approach to declutter and simplify. Kondo’s approach is to judge if the item sparks joy in you; Jay’s approach challenges readers to further eliminate the physical stuff filling up the space, to open up space in mind. Very helpful to keep me motivated to pursue minimalist lifestyle.

Norse Mythology trims down the complicated mess of stories that makes up the Norse lore into a very readable digest that covers the main story lines without having to read across many different authors and retells them in Gaiman’s grim and witty style. 5/5 stars.
