The first in National Geographic's 365-photo-a-day line of inspirational books, Daily Joy unites inspiring words of joy with lovely National Geographic images of the world—a perfect gift to keep on your bedside table to read just before bed or first thing in the morning. Daily Joy's elegant design features 365 days of gorgeous National Geographic photography, each one paired with a meaningful quotation, meditation, or thought that will help readers find joy every day of the year. Each month has a theme, and all the quotes are centered around it:

  • January/Renewal: "Just where you are—that's the place to start." —Pema Chodron
  • February/Love: "Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." —Khalil Gibran
  • March/Authenticity: "Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." —Mahatma Gandhi
  • April/Growth: "A jug fills drop by drop." —Buddha
  • May/Courage: "It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it has to have tried and succeeded." —Anne Morrow Lindbergh
  • June/Perspective: "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." —J. K. Rowling
  • July/Adventure: "Life itself is the proper binge." —Julia Child
  • August/Freedom: "Freedom is from within." —Frank Lloyd Wright
  • September/Purpose: "The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause." —Mark Twain
  • October/Fulfillment: "Ah! There's nothing like staying home for real comfort." —Jane Austen
  • November/Wisdom: "Sleep is the best meditation." —The Dalai Lama
  • December/Faith: "Peace is always beautiful." —Walt Whitman

As poet John Keats wrote, "A thing of beauty is a joy forever," and readers will turn to Daily Joy year after year to find wonder, awe, and happiness in the world around them.

    Comments about Daily Joy:

    Bought this as part of a gift for somebody I did not know very well for part of a "pay it forward" project I was involved in. She said it was "absolutely perfect." I admit I looked at all the pictures and read the quotes before I gave it away and it is an excellent little book. Very fat, sturdy and well-made. Nice, attractive hard-cover. The pictures, of course, are beautiful and the quotes well-chosen from a variety of types and sources. I loved the thematic groupings for time of year as well. Well worth the price. I would definitely consider this again as a gift or for the table in my own office. The best part is, with a different one for every day, a person can easily get to the end of the year and start all over again from the beginning without feeling like it is tedious repetition.

    This is an inspirational book - both the quotes and visually. It would be incredible as a daily quote on the computer! And I would love to have some of these photos as wallpaper/screensavers, just saying. Excellent job!
