4 Books I Am Reading - What is on Your Reading List?

I love books. I love the feel, the smell - the tangibility of books. Stick me in a used bookstore and I will come out broke and happy as a clam.  Although, currently Amazon is my delivery of choice.

I have resisted the kindle although I like the idea of immediate gratification, but nothing replaces curling up with a good book, plus I read tooooo much online as it is.

Here is the stack next to my bed that I will be curling up with as soon as possible:

  • Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert - I am about halfway through on a second read since the book has had a resurgence with the new movie out.  I love it ... it is real, raw and funny and a wonderful peek into Elizabeth's very cool travels.
  •  Water Signs by Daria DiGiovanni - this book is by one of my Parasol Partners that I adore!  Daria is ridiculously talented with a beautiful romantic heart and I am diving in! "Water Signs is an odyssey of heartbreak, personal growth and spiritual development that leads them full-circle to a Divinely guided conclusion."  Yup - sounds perfect!  Daria also has a great blog to check out with writer hints and peeks into the pages of Water Signs!
  • Harlot's Sauce by Patricia Volonakis Davis -  I had the pleasure of being part of the blogging community with Patricia as Harlot's Sauce was being born.  My copy is winging its way through UPS as we speak and I cannot wait.  Patricia is one of my favorite people and I can assure ... Harlot's Sauce will tickle your fancy!  "With vivid descriptions of life in beautiful, modern-day Greece, this memoir is both a tasty treat and an exhilarating sail on the Hellenic seas through xenophobia, dysfunctional family units, religious ravings, obsessive protocols, political disorder, European football, and fabulous food."  
  • Stop Walking on Eggshells by Paul T. Mason & Randi Kreger - I am recovering from my marital state.  Still.  ARG.  Recently, in a long outpouring of relationship sagas in the wee hours of the morning, a friend recommended this book after hearing about some of my experiences.  All I can say is ... wow ... I wish I had this two years ago.  And I would also like to say: SEE, I WAS NOT THE CRAZY ONE!  but that would be childish.  wouldn't it?
