Win a copy of Elizabeth Gilbert's Committed: A Love Story



Elizabeth Gilbert’s iconic memoir Eat, Pray, Love made history this year as the longest running book at the # 1 spot on the New York Times paperback nonfiction bestseller list, and as I’m sure you know, it was made into a major Hollywood movie last summer starring Julia Roberts.

On February 1st and just in time for Valentine’s Day, Penguin Books is excited to release in paperback her follow-up memoir COMMITTED: A Love Story which picks up where Eat, Pray, Love leaves off.   In short: after Elizabeth and Felipe are detained at an American border crossing and effectively sentenced to wed by the US government, she is forced to confront, examine and eventually make peace with the idea of marriage--an institution she never intended to enter into again. 

Winner is Stacy P. drawn 3/14/11

  1. I have a copy of Eat, Pray, Love on my stacks, but haven't read it yet.

    I have seen the movie, though, and I'm quite curious about this sequel.

  5. I liked Eat, Pray, Love and thought Gilbert a good writer--liked the book better than the movie, actually.

  6. I read this book last year and really enjoyed it. It reads more like non-fiction - I really enjoyed learning what marriage means in different countries and more importantly... social status, generation etc...

  7. I read about this originally over at Jehara's blog - her thoughts on the book were very interesting. I don't know that I'd glean as much introspection from it as she did, but it did sound like a worthy read. I'll leave the giveaway to those who really want it.

  9. Thanks for the giveaway offer!

    I read EPL and actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would as many people I know struggled to get through it. Some just never managed to finish it.
