Promising review: “I love the concept of hygge because being cozy and surrounded by the people I love are my favorite things in the world. The book is informative and just a great guide for how to slow down a busy life and learn to appreciate the little things we all take for granted: having a calm day at home, candles, cozy clothing, and time spent with family and close friends. This book reminds me to think of the little things during times of great stress. I love it so much. I now own the audio book (which I listen to fairly often, especially at work when I’m trying to meet a deadline), the physical copy, and now the ebook version on my Kindle — I want to have access to hygge everywhere I go.” —Kelsey
