An ideal book for dipping into when you’re up in the night feeling unwell, this is a sweet collection of pieces by (mainly) writers about the simple pleasures that cause them delight.  From happy dogs through popping the seal on a jar of coffee to Twitter, there is something here for everyone, and the pieces are simple, poetic, moving and funny in turns.  One to look through when the going gets a bit tough.
