Aug 17th 2010- Eat Pray Love and Camino

 We went to see Eat Pray Love  at the cinema today.  And I have to say that it was one of the better book to movie translations that I have ever seen.

Just a brilliant film.  We didn't get a lot of time to chat about it, as two of the ladies had appointments to get to afterward. 
 Myself and Helen did however go to a coffee shop for a few hours and talked about "Camino" by Shirley MacLaine  which was the "unofficial" book club selection.   I think I over powered her with my 14 pages of notes on the book. 

We were all at different stages of the book Eat Pray Love,  so the chat circled mostly around the movie version.  I have to say that I personally connected most with the "pray" section of the book.  The idea of spending time doing nothing but searching your inner soul is something I am wanting to do.  Most of us agreed we have the "eat" part down.

Summer 2010


Journaling, sharing, inspiring, following. It's what we do when we read a book. When reading a story be it fiction or non-fiction, we are taken along for the ride however brief.

The goal for this group is to do that. To share and grow and inspire.
From your favourite stories to new ones you just discovered.
