Eat Pray Love Review

As part of HerStories Memoir Challenge, here's the first 4 sentence review. (3 more to go):

Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir of her recovery from divorce and a severe bout of depression has three distinct parts. Through 108 tales (beads) she takes the reader on a lively, meditative and romantic memoir of travels to three countries, Italy, India and Indonesia. EAT seems at times to be a travelog of her three month quest in Italy to fill an insatiable appetite, PRAY is an intimate and honest revelation of soul searching in an Indian Ashram and LOVE brings everything together in Indonesian balance. The book is entertaining as well as informative, incorporates a full cast of interesting characters, and the sad and pensive moments are balanced with a good sense of humor.

Reading... Not Writing

The obvious... 2008 was dead on slow as far as blog entries for me. In 6 years (I didn't count 2002 where I started the blog in December) only one other year this slow with a mere 64 entries. Lack of interest? Definitely not. Lack of time? More likely. Writer's block? Even more likely. So what's up?... Perhaps it's time to do a bit of reading. Good timing considering StoryCircle's current challenge. I need to find 4 memoirs to indulge this challenge. Two are already on my nightstand so I'll start with those...

Grace(Eventually) by Anne Lamott
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I'll be checking StoryCircle website for the other two.

Not to say I won't write. Just waiting for that trigger.
