My place & yours!

The lovely Vic over at Punky & Me is now the reigning Queen of My place & yours! I was too much of a slacker to join in last year but this year I will put my butt into gear and participate - it's really cool to see how many bloggers there are that have scaringly similar or inspiringly different tastes than me! The theme for this week is

What I'm reading!

Books wise I'm making my way through the books below :

My place

Elizabeth Gilberts Eat, Pray, Love and Bill Grangers cook book EveryDay. I have read them both before but I find that in different ways they are both the kind of books that give me soul food. Whether it be reading about Elizabeth falling in love in Italy or finding spirituality or Bill managing to feed all three daughters dynamically healthy food whilst nursing a hangover from a beautiful dinner party - it just makes me hopeful that one day I will find that balance of organisation, fulfilment and white wine dinner parties! Either that or I will still be re - reading these books.

I read Eat, Pray, Love about a year ago, it was ok I guess. The cookbook is one I haven't read, I'll have to put it on my very long "To be Read sometime" list.

Well, as Eat, Pray, Love was on Oprah, I'm guessing I won't like it... :p
That's silly, Middlesex was on there too & it was most excellent, I just hate the idea of reading the same book as everybody else, if you know what I mean.

Thank you for playing along Katy, especially since you've not gotten around to it before, that's awesome!

Oohh, I need to check out Bill Granger. I think he also grows most of the vegies for his restaurant at his family's farm and composts all the scraps too. Great stuff.

aww thank you for the comment on the Third Hand Thrift blog! It means a lot!
We are hoping for the best : )

I have been meaning to read Eat, Pray, Love for awhile. I've heard good things!
