Why Did I Wait So Long?

I have just begun reading "Eat, Pray, Love" on my lunch break and I am sure, if my lunch break were never ending, I would read until I reached the last page.  Why did I wait so long to read this?  It has been out a long time and I have had friends who enjoyed it give raving reviews, and yet I had no interest. 

So maybe it took Julia Roberts or my own changing life and desires, my similarities to the author and the differences that make her seem so goofy to me... but when I went to the UAH bookstore during yesterday's lunch break, I bought "National Security for a New Era" (my text book for National Security Policy) and "Eat, Pray, Love". 

I am on page 36 and I must stop now to resume work...but I am so glad the weekend is almost here.


  1. Ok, now you've swayed me, too. I've had no interest in the book either, but I'm sort of curious about the movie (love Julia Roberts). If you like it, I'm sure I will too. :o)

  2. I do so far! It only took a few pages and I was hooked! I think you will like her.
