Eat, Pray, Love
Okay, I can not wait to see this book become a movie. At first I was little hesitant, but Julia Roberts is my favorite actress and this book was the best I've read in years. The author, Elizabeth Gilbert is a pro at bringing you into her world. From Italy to Indonesia, the enlightenment that happens throughout this memoir is endearing. It is coming to screen in August, so until then, I will read and re-read Eat, Pray, Love.
If you haven't read it, I suggest you do.
"We search for happiness everywhere, but we are like Tolstoy's fabled beggar who spent his life sitting on a pot of gold, under him the whole time. Your treasure--your perfection--is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the buy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart."
— Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia)
