It has been a long time since I read a book other than nutrition and health books but I am so enjoying this one called: Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. It is an autobiography and her search for everything across Italy, India, and Indonesia.

The subject matter is interesting and her writing style is one I love.

Happy Reading!

Anne LaMott is one of my all-time favorite authors. I love her story and I also love her writing style. Her style was kind of liberating for me in that I thought ..mmm..that is a type of writing style I could be comfortable with.

I saw her on a TV talk show once. Extremely cool. She has freckles, red hair in dreads!!

Come to think of it..shortly after reading her I looked into MWO..I related...

I too liked Anne L's writing style.
I'm going to look for Eat Pray Love.

The Ragamuffin Gospel is good too. Manning
And Messy Spirituality. Yaconelli

They are all written with humor and Truth.
Love you all,
