My initial impression of the book, “the life-changing magic of tidying up”, was already quite positive. Usually when dealing with books I like to take time to hold and feel the pages, since this was an eBook, all I could do was hold my tablet and examine the cover image. I loved the simplicity of the cover and felt that if the eBook followed in a similar fashion I would also love the book.
The first thing I noticed was the impressive promise made by this digital delight, namely the words “life-changing magic”. Who doesn’t love magic, especially when it promises to be life-changing? Another thing that caught my attention is categorising decluttering and tidying as a “Japanese Art”. Now to make my review transparent, I will say I do love Japan, and all things Japanese. So this eBook was off to a fantastic start.
For me, I enjoyed reading the book in its entirety first before any action. I like to know what I’m getting into before I commit whole-heartedly into any exercise. So, I plan to action the steps on my second reading, and make the tidying process “special”.
Overall I really enjoyed reading the eBook and will need to update you all on the results once I make a magic tidying date with myself. I’m actually super excited about the KonMari version of tidying (and that says a lot because I love organising, sorting and filing).
