Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Spark Joy by Marie Kondo, read by Sumalee Montano.
Spark Joy is an in-depth, room-by-room guide to decluttering and organising your home. It covers every room in the house, from bedrooms and kitchens to bathrooms and living rooms, as well as a wide range of items in different categories, including clothes, photographs, paperwork, books, cutlery, cosmetics, shoes, bags, wallets and valuables.
The secret to Marie Kondo's unique and simple KonMari tidying method is to focus on what you want to keep, not what you want to get rid of. Ask yourself if something 'sparks joy', and suddenly it becomes so much easier to understand if you really need it in your home and your life. When you surround yourself with things you love, you will find that your whole life begins to change.
Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, presents her unique tidying philosophy and introduces listeners to the basics of her KonMari method. It has already transformed the homes and lives of millions of people around the world. Spark Joy is Marie Kondo's in-depth tidying masterclass, focusing on the detail of how to declutter and organise your home.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Tidying from a slightly different perspective

This was a relaxing experience to listen to. It's narrated very calmly and managed to not be too patronising (which many tidying books can be).

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed listening to it and it has made me want to approach tidying from a category perspective rather than room by room.

The same but in more detail

I enjoyed this, it's very much the same as the first book but with much more detail and more actionable. If you enjoyed the first one you will love this just as much. A great reference to listen to again and very easy to listen to.

I need no other book on tidying.

Loved the principals of this book and have started implementing them in my home. I now understand the difference between clean and tidy. Clean is related to the environment and happens externally to us. Eg dust and dirt. Tidy is directly related to us and the choices we make.. If there are excess objects in our home they got there because of us. Some objects we find hard to part with yet we don't use them or need them. This book helps with the letting go process in a way I would never have considered. Ie thank the item for the joy or pleasure it gave and let it go peacefully. I am not a person who regards books and objects as having feelings (as this book implies) but I do know I have feelings towards objects, and this letting go process does have merit. I've listened to the audio of this book entirely, and now have bought the book. I look forward to systemically working through each area in order as Marie wisely suggests. Clothes first them books, followed by papers, miscellaneous and finally sentimental. It is a progressive process from the easy to the hard so we learn to hone our skills of finding joy before we get to the hard stuff. I definitely recommend this book.
