On our nightstands: #2

Now that school is over with (whew), I can finally read whatever I want, whenever I want.  I love it!  Since school has let out in December I have read one and a half books.  

The first was Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.  This is not the typical story I read.  Lately, anyway, I've been all about what I call "beach books."  Books that have little meaning other than a simple pleasure while the waves wash up on the shore.  They are usually love stories that end in happiness.  This book was different.  Not that it didn't have a love story, but it was from a man's point of view and was more about accepting life for what it is.  At any rate, I would recommend it!

The book that I am currently reading is Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  It is a memoir of her journey of self discovering crossing Italy, India and Indonesia (more specifically Bali).  I'm about 2/3 of the way through it and feel as though it is lifting my soul.  I don't want to sound cheesy and certainly don't want to run off across the world, but I want to be like her.  Full of passion and curiosity with a purpose in life to enjoy it and live in the moment with passion, pleasure and love.

Nick got a Barnes and Noble gift card from work for Christmas and used that gift to purchase Bone: The Complete Cartoon Epic in One Volume by Jeff Smith.  I do not know much about it, other than that their are three brothers who go their separate ways.  It chronicles their journeys.  He is enjoying reading it, which is all that matters.
