George Mahood had a nice, easy, comfortable life. He had a job, a house, a wife, and kids. But something was missing. He was stuck in a routine of working, changing nappies, and cleaning up cat sick. He felt like he was missing out on a lot of what the world had to offer. He then discovered that it was Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. The day after that was National Curmudgeon Day, and the day after that was Inane Answering Machine Message Day.
In fact, the calendar is full of these quirky, weird, and wonderful events. He realized that somebody somewhere had created these holidays, believing that they were important enough to warrant their own official day. Surely he should therefore be more appreciative of their existence? So he decided to try and celebrate them all. As you do. He hoped that at the end of the challenge he would be transformed into a happier, more intelligent and more content person.
Follow George on his hilarious, life-changing adventure as he tries to balance his normal life with a wealth of new experiences, people, facts, and ridiculous situations. It's a rip-roaring, life-affirming, roller coaster of a ride, where every day is a holiday.

Another witty and joyful book from George
I have to say no. I loved the book, but having read a few of Georges other books beforehand it was difficult to get used to the voice reading the book.
the most memorable moments in the book are when George tells Rachel what the holiday it is on that particular day. I laugh at almost all of them, George is so enthusiastic about each one and I get the impression that a lot of the time Rachel cant actually believe that he is going ahead with them. Sometimes she wants to kill him other times she cant help but laugh.
The performance was a little children's theater which may well be the style with audio books, this was my first one. When reading Georges kids parts it reminded me of watching kids tv when i was growing up.
The snow day, brought back good memories of growing up.
I have now read 4 of George's books, i loved them all. They make you laugh and they are very easy to relate to. Operation Ironman even inspired me to complete a half Ironman after reading it. Looking forward to reading the most recent release
