    At the end of her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government....

    What did you love best about Committed?

    The narrator and author are one and the same and I LOVE that. I love her style of writing and her explanations are so educated and well researched and she speaks to me because I can relate to her desires and needs.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a lot more educational than the first book, Eat, Pray, Love. That was also educational in many ways but it was intertwined around a much broader storyline. This book, even though a continuation of that same story, lacked a lot of the story telling elements which I had hoped would continue on. Still, a brilliant read and really spoke to me since I am a girlfriend to a man I would jump at the chance to marry. It really gives you a very multi-facetted insight at marriage and how it is viewed across different cultures and through different people’s eyes. Stirring. A great author with a gift for interpreting difficult things in a simple and sane manner without the over-use of long, difficult words.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    This book is fabulous for those who enjoy online emertion such as Second Life, World of Warcraft or even if you just love using the internet. It is even better for those of us who thrived in the 80s. My boyfriend read the first couple of chapters of this book and told me that it was DEFINITELY something I could get into. I have to say that it is a very cool, very easy to follow account of something incredibly attractive to me. Well done!

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    The entire thing, from the first page to the last, was absolutely brilliant. No wonder it was turned into a movie. I must confess that I saw the movie before I ever cared about reading the book but I have been so drawn in by the story that the movie is now one of my all-time favorites and the book I have listened to and read so many times I have lost count. It is so satisfying to see the wear on the book that I own and so satisfying to her the story exactly as it was meant to be heard with the author reading it. I cannot say enough about this book. I could sit here and rave about it for a good long time, but instead I urge everyone to give this a listen. It is a portal to a whole new way of understanding myself and putting into perspective exactly what it is that I want out of life.
