There is nothing better to me than a fresh stack of books to read. Ok...maybe a seat by a window and a plate of cold, crunchy apple slices make it better.... :)
Today I checked out these two from the library.
What I wouldn't give for a coffee date with Alice Walker. She has to be one of my favorite authors. Her books are intense and I have to read them at the right times in my life, but they always astound me. I liked her daughter Rebecca Walker's autobiography Black, White, & Jewish as well. I'd like to read more of her work.
I just finished Eat, Pray, Love, which is Elizabeth Gilbert's story of living a year in Italy, India, and Indonesia. I highly recommend this book. It is equal parts gorgeous food writing, travel guide, and reflective journey. I read that a movie is being made of this book...I'm interested to see how it comes out.
What are you reading?
P.S. Check this out.
