eat. pray. love.


self portrait, canon digital rebel xt

i finally have this book in my home.

i definitely love to do all three of those things with a passion:

eat
pray
and love.

i look forward to how her story will inspire me. i can already feel that i resonate with her spirit. i would love to hear your thoughts on this book (without giving too much away, of course).

i know i'm a little bit behind in reading this but when i hear of a life altering book, i make sure to be in the right head space to embrace it.

I am reading it now. I saw it at a bookstore a couple months ago and it drew me in like a magnet. I was then pleasantly surprised to see so many other kindreds also were reading it. So far, I LOVE it.

Because I only have time lately to read a few pages each night before bed I am still in EAT, which is her time in Italy. I am truly savoring each passage.

We'll have to share thoughts soon...

I am just about to start the second part of this book...it is fabulous and right up your alley. I'd love to hear your take on it after you dive in, i would hate to give away too much at this point so i am going to keep my mouth shut for now because I have the tendency to let details slip out :) Hope you enjoy it! Much love and light to you my kindred spirit across the country ;)

This is a wonderful book. She was so open and present for her journey. I recommended it to a good friend and she said she had to keep stopping throughout because she kept finding lines she wanted to write down because they resonated so loudly with her. Now that my friend is a great indicator don't you think? Enjoy and savor every word.

I feel very blessed that I did not need to take such a journey to find ..... (not giving anything away).

Although I guess I have had my own journey ... just not as extreme.

Loved the book. Would love to be able to be so free. And then in away I am happy to be grounded.

Amazing, delicious and truly made my soul dance. I just passed it along to my mother. This book is full of feeling...hope you love it.

OH my GOSH. You will love it. You will love her. You will wish she had a BLOG because you will love her that much and you just want to read her words forever and be her friend. I've read it twice now and just adored it - and learned much from it. The Italian section makes me drool from all the talk about delicious food!!

Also, I love her book The Last American Man. She wrote it long before Eat Pray Love but it's still in her voice and a really amazing story at that.

I love this book! I just finished it last week - my post today shares the title too - I thought this was just too coincidental that I had to comment. I think you will really enjoy it. I was very inspired by the author's time in India, which is the pray section of the book.

I have this book and I'll be reading it as soon as I'm finished with "Canyon Solitude" by Patricia McClarin.

I have heard so many evocative reviews of this book from the bloggy world that I just had to buy it.

Let us know what you think!

Sweet! I am reading this book also! So far it is a great read, it just takes me awhile to get through it, because my eyes get so sleepy from reading.

Beautiful photography!!

This book is one I keep by my bed, because I often think of bits and pieces that resonate with what has come up in my life, or what I need to be looking forward to.

I gave this book to all my close friends for Christmas this year. All of them have said it was an incredible book and touched them in ways most books can't or don't. You will love it. Enjoy!

Yes, I agree with Andrea, you will definitely crave pizza. I'm in the first part of the book and all want to do is go to each Italian restaurant in Chicago and ask for best dish they have.
It's good to read before bed, you laugh, relax, and then your off to dream world.
