From the Bookshelf. “The life-changing manga of tidying up. A magical story.” by Marie Kondo, illustrated by Yuko Uramoto.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that Marie Kondo and her method changed my life, but for sure it made me realise that organising possessions and personal space does have a power to change a lot and that instead of approaching the task with a loose plan on how to, it makes much more sense to use a well defined method.
After two bestsellers came time for an unexpected publication – a manga book. I was intrigued enough to place an order and despite my initial doubt, enjoyed the story of Chiaki, a single Japanese gal living in Tokyo who wants to make her life more meaningful and joyful, but doesn’t quite know how to. “The life-changing manga of tidying up. A magical story.” has all attributes of a real manga. The story line is focused on improving and organising, which in the process leads to changing own life. Perhaps I wouldn’t recommend to start own KonMari adventure here, but if you already are a fan, it is a nice addition to what you read so far and can visualise the whole process.
