Great Reads

I've read a couple of great books lately and thought I'd share. Most recently I finished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I enjoyed it and found it very interesting, although I can see how some might not like it. I noticed on Kelly's blog she said she was the only one of her group of friends who did like it. Kelly, you were the first person I thought of when I heard about the book....I knew you'd like it!

A couple of months ago I read The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck. It's an old book, but definitely a life changing one for me. I knew I was messed up, but this pointed out more than I really wanted to admit. :) I cannot imagine a single person who would not benefit from reading this book. It was a lot to take in and I'll be reading it again in the near future.


The Glass Castle is another great book I finished last month. It's a remarkable memoir by Jeannette Walls that's so unbelievable and witty that I had trouble putting it down.
Finally, I have just started reading Gorgeously Green by Sophie Uliano. I'm not so concerned with the "Gorgeously" aspect of the book, but it is a great guide to living a "green" life.

I'm not big on hanging on to my books, so if anyone is interested in reading these (other than The Road Less Traveled, which is on loan to me by Cole's Papaw) let me know and I'll mail it to you.
Good lord! Can you tell I have just recently learned how to get pictures off of the internet. Who knew it was so easy?! Haa! I think I went a little overboard in this post.

I am currently reading Eat/Love/Pray. It is ok, a little slow I think so far, but I am not giving up on it. I will have to read your other suggestions. thanks, always up for a good read!
