Read With Us: My September (and October) Picks

October 1, 2010

I’m going to do something different for the Read With Us for September. I actually chose two books so that my readers can have a choice at which one they’d like to win when I do the giveaway on it. I’ll just count one as my October pick.

I personally have been reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. It talks about a family’s journey towards trying to eat only what’s in season by either growing it themselves or buying locally.

The book has some funny one-liners in it. When I was reading this on one of my recent flights, I had some people glancing over at me on the plane because I couldn’t help laughing out loud several times.  I’m a big fan of reading about the journeys of other people as they often inspire me to start one of my own. Since I’ve been so busy with Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred I haven’t completely finished this one yet.

And for the second pick, I am choosing Eat, Pray, Love… as so many of my readers have read this one and so many others have asked me to pick it so they might have a chance to win it. I did see the movie version of it at the end of August and I’m looking forward to someday finding out how close the movie was to the book.

So when I do the Read With Us giveaway here soon, I’ll be letting my two winners have a chance to pick either book.

Thanks! I’m putting a request for “Animal,Vegetabe, Miracle…” at my library now! I’m just about finished reading John Holt’s “How Children Fail” for the third time and was trying to figure out what to get next. Now I know!

I just finished Eat Pray Love and it was quite good…so was the movie, but I won’t spill the beans on how closely the movie follows the book. I think the other book sounds interesting, too!
