Recently Canongate Books put a call out for literary guinea pigs for a new project called #NudgeYourWorld.
The eminent playwright Sir Tom Stoppard once said that the right words, in the right order, can nudge your world a little.
This is the thinking behind Canongate’s bookish experiment – #NudgeYourWorld.
Each month, they are picking one book and sharing its lessons – then it’s up to us to try to apply its wisdom to our daily lives.
I’m participating in #NudgeYourWorld – a project which encourages readers to apply the wisdom of selected books into their day-to-day lives.
The first literary guinea pig for the project was Milo McLaughlin, who explored Edward Slingerland’s paradoxical Trying not to Try. He did really rather well with it.
Now it’s my turn, and I’ll be reading and living by The Antidote by Oliver Burkeman.
Over the next 7 days, I’ll be reading Oliver’s antidote to self-help and the cult of positive thinking in his book which is dubbed, happiness for people who can’t stand positive thinking”.
Here’s the book trailer for more on the book.
Keep up with BEDA to learn how I get on!
