I am about a third of the way through the book, Elizabeth Gilbert has just arrived in Indonesia, and I am enjoying this book emmensely! As I think that others would enjoy this book as well I have decided to offer this book up as a ring. The ring will begin as soon as I finish, which should be soon!

How the bookring works:

* Put the book at the top of your TBR pile (under other rings/rays that arrived first)

* Read the book (take your time and enjoy the book, don't feel rushed to finish it)

* When the end is in sight, check the book's journal and PM the next person to get their address

* Finish the book, make another journal entry and let everyone know what you thought of the book

* Send the book to the next person on the list (please use the cheapest shipping method available), make release notes (Controlled Release) or journal entry to let everyone know that it's in the mail

I really enjoyed this book and the author's journey to self discovery. Her trip from Italy to India to Indonesia was funny and insightful. In fact her description of her time in India, in a an Ashram has made me pick back up my meditation habits. Oh, to only be able to go on a year long journey to discover yourself and work out all your baggage, that would be bliss! I hope that the future readers of this book enjoy it as much as I did and am eager to hear what they think of it.

I was gone yesterday, but when I got home today, this was waiting in my stack of mail. Thank you liz-z and I will get it moving again soon.

Journal Entry 6 by Bluestocking88 from -- Wild released somewhere in the state, Washington USA on Tuesday, November 13, 2007
I'm just over half way through this book and am truly amazed at how insightful and open Gilbert is with her story. At the moment I cannot move beyond bead 57--it was so powerful I had to underline two sentences in the book--"Devotion is diligence without assurance." and "If faith were rational, it wouldn't be--by definition--faith." I feel like I am meditating on Gilbert and her walk, and am finding this book to be inspiring.

I'm a Christian that actually attends Church most Sunday mornings--but if I'm honest, usually with a little resentment about getting out of bed in the morning and getting the kids ready and out the door. Gilbert's journey in India to date, and especially this bead has given me great food for thought regarding my attitude to Church and where I am in my own spiritual journey.

I love this book very much. So much so that I have purchased a copy for myself and am mailing this out to phylwil in tomorrow's mail. I really enjoy how openly she explores her discovery of herself--unlike so many journals or travel narratives, she goes into her feelings and personal discoveries in such a way that they are a joy to read rather than a sermon. Excellent book, and I'm looking forward to reading her second book due out in a year or so. Thank you so much for sharing.

Yeah! This book has arrived. I am really looking forward to reading this. Thanks liz-z and bluestocking88!

Journal Entry 10 by phylwil from Longview, Texas USA on Friday, December 28, 2007
I can't begin to say how much I loved this book. First, the heartfelt spiritual search, which resulted in such joyful successes for her and provided insights for me as well. Second, her fascinating travels and immersion into the cultures she is visiting. I wish I had the wherewithal to do something similar. Finally, her writing style appeals to me. Some of her experiences made me burst out in laughter, causing people around me to stare.

This is on to Caridad, the next reader, as soon as she sends her address and may she enjoy it as much as I did.
