Review: Eat, Pray, Love

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I loved this book! It was great from beginning to end. The author's search for meaning and God in her life is admirable, and a true example of money not equaling happiness.

I've noticed a lot of people knocking Gilbert for "whining" about her publisher's book advance that paid for her travel. I think those people are missing the point, or at least skipped the moment where she loses everything in a messy divorce before regaining her independence through hard work (and she does work very hard) and discipline.

While the pace of Eat, Pray, Love does slow toward the end of the second part (India), you can almost feel Gilbert's own mind, body, and spirit finding a more comfortable home. Instead of being panicky and worried all the time, things start to fall into place, and life takes on a less frantic velocity.

Funny and touching - a very enjoyable read that I didn't want to end.

My site has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Others have voiced my confusion above, but it's nice sometimes to add towards the melee. I've been signed up since the middle of January, but have three letters. They're terrific letters! But similarly, I'd like to know if this is just the process in the dust settling or if this is to be expected?
