#2: Read, "Eat Love Pray" by Elizabeth Gilbert

This is a fantastic book. I can't praise it enough. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone - all ages, nationalities, religions, whatever. If you've ever found yourself wondering what the point of life and/or religion is/was, this is the book for you. And if you can read and aren't ADD to the point where you can't sit still long enough to read, this is the book for you. In short, read the book!

The book is about the author, Elizabeth Gilbert, after she goes through a harrowing, traumatizing divorce. She takes a year of her life and decides to spend it looking for meaning and searching for God. She spends 4 months each in Italy, India, and Indonesia, and finds more than she bargains for.

A journey of self-discovery is one every human makes; Gilbert simply made a much more obvious one than most of us get the opportunity to make. Simply fascinating. I can't say that enough. Definitely a book worth buying.

Isn't it a good read. I felt refreshed after reading it. Now if I could just find another book that was as good as this. Still searching.
