Book Update

I hadn't updated my book list on the sidebar all summer so I did that this morning. A couple that I really enjoyed and recommend:

Eat Love Pray by Elizabeth Gilbert - The subtitle of this memoir really tells the story: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia
At many points in this book, I felt like I was looking in a mirror.

Without a Map by Meredith Hall - Terrific memoir about a woman who became pregnant as a teen in the 60s, was forced to give the baby up for adoption and the subsequent ramifications on her life. Interesting look at forgiveness.

Lucia, Lucia by Adriana Trigiani - Cute, quick read by the author of the Big Gap series, which I also loved. About a young Italian woman in the 50s who is torn between marrying and giving up her seamstress career.

Wish I had the extra time to read. James just doesn't seem interested in my books. ;)

I love your book list. We have several reads in common. I'll have to check out some of those I've not read yet. Good luck with your houndstooth jacket.

I listened to Eat, Pray, Love on my iPod when I took a loooong trip recently. I loved that book. Loved. It.
