How could I not choose this book for my choice this month. I did say I wasn't being original - I chose "eat, pray, love" when it came out.
The funny thing is I didn't even know this book existed until yesterday - obviously the publicity machine isn't working too well in "the hills". I researched so many books on Tuesday and Wednesday night as I really wanted a book with a Christmas theme but had no luck finding one that sounded ok and was available at the library. I said to Richard before heading off to work that I was just going to walk into the bookshop and the first thing that grabbed me was "it".
So I headed off after work, stopped at the library to, surprise surprise, "return a book" and there it was in the "hot read section". I was so excited - rushed over to the bookshop and right at the entrance was a whole display of them. Had a quick read of the blurb and then rushed over to Target to see if they had the book cheaper - wahoo - $9 cheaper. It was my lucky day.
I so enjoyed "eat, pray, love". Haven't been able to watch the movie yet tho - not sure I quite saw Julia Roberts as Elizabeth Gilbert so that's been a bit of a block - maybe when it comes out on DVD. Fingers crossed I enjoy "Comitted" too and more importantly "the bookclub girls" do as well.
Now, I've got 4 weeks to plan dessert.
Enjoy the sunshine this weekend and think of me as I cook another BBQ for the cricket club this time with my girl friends helping and some bubbles.
PS Our front cover for this book is prettier and more romantic looking than the one above.
