  1. July 18, 1969: Happy 44th birthday, Elizabeth Gilbert!
    (^_^)o自自o(^_^ )

  2. Heard about it, but never actually read the book, nor seen the movie…
    Maybe I should rectify that!

  3. I think I will read this book now too. I heard the movie was not so good. This biography makes me want to read her wisdom. You are always opening my mind with your posts. Very enlightening blog you have here. 🙂
