Quick Update on Penguin Celebrations

I happened to be in the store where I originally bought the three Penguin Celebrations editions and thought I would see if they still had some...scanned the shelves once, twice, three times...didn't see them. Finally thought to ask a salesman and he told me they were all GONE. The distributor took all the unsold Celebrations in Belgium and put them all in some bookshop in the Brussels Airpot. Dang!

I did check the Penguin website and you can still buy some of them online...but not all of them are available. I am nearly done with Zadie Smith...

Have you read Eat, Pray, Love? If so, what did you think about it? I am desperately trying to work my way through it but don't seem to feel the same inspiration from it as others do.

Oh, too bad about your books! At least that will save you some money, right?

You are getting me interested in those Penguin books. I'll check out my book stores.

Katy, I have read Eat, Pray, Love (Joy gave it to me for my birthday) and I know what you mean about it being hard to get into at first. I have to say I liked the last bit in Indonesia the best and the first part in Italy the least. I may do a blog entry on it at some point, but then I would need to re-read some parts that have faded from memory in the meantime!
