Eat, Pray, Love

I know this is not adoption-related at all (you should proably get used to that, I don't anticipate having much to share for a little while), but I have to tell you about "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. As long as you don't live in a deep, dark cave, I'm sure you've heard about this book by now - it's been on Oprah, NPR, various booklists, etc. And usually I'm not one to jump on the band wagon, but something about this book got me hooked! So I reqested it online through the public library, but I inadvertently requested the audio version. When I went to pick it up, I was expecting the print version, but I still took the audio in the mean-time. I immediately noticed that it was read by the actual author, so I decided to upload it to my ipod and give it a listen.

This audiobook is soooo good that everyday I just can't wait to get in my car so I can listen to more of it! The author's voice is so calming and relaxing and I feel like she's one of my best friends now. The book itself is very interesting, but what I love about it is the way she tells it, her descriptions, her love of writing, journaling - it makes me want to go out and buy hundreds of journals and write down everything. Most of all it has made me grateful that I've stumbled upon the world of blogging and that I'll have an account of my life in the months leading up to Poppy's arrival.
