Photos of My Life No. 6: My Favorite Non-Fiction Book
Posted on: 20th of July 2010 | Under: Geek Talk

For my sixth Photos of My Life, Faye requested a photo of my favorite non-fiction book.

If you don’t already know, I am a bit of a bookworm. For the past couple of months, I have set aside shopping for clothes, shoes and makeup, and replaced it with trips to the bookstore instead. Every single week I buy about two to three new books to add to my reading pile. It’s such an expensive hobby (which is why I love book sales and coupons!), but something I just can’t seem to live without. My goal of books to read this year is fifty, and I’m glad to say that I am already on my thirty-first book. That’s already past my twenty-seven books for the whole of 2009. :)

Most of my reads are fiction, but I do pick up several non-fictions from time to time. My current favorite is Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love.

Eat Pray Love

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I read Eat Pray Love two years ago, and it was one exciting book that I just couldn’t put down. It was a delight to experience the author’s path to self-discovery through her adventures of food, travel, love and inner peace. A book filled with both humor and positive life realizations. It made me itch to pack my bags and go on a year-long travel around the world.

The movie adaptation of the book coming in August is definitely something that I’m looking forward to. I normally find movie versions of my favorite books a letdown, but I think experiencing Eat Pray Love visually would still be a nice treat for a travel junkie like me.

What about you guys? What’s your favorite non-fiction book? :)

    I love this book! It is so inspiring and frankly, it helped me get over a heartbreak. I also can’t wait for the movie. Even seeing the trailer gives me goosebumps :)

    It’s a lovely book, isn’t it? Makes you realize the true beauty of life. Excited for the movie too! Just a few more weeks! :)

    I love this book too. :) My favorite non-fiction book would be Flashbang by Mark Steele. It’s something I always go back to when my faith needs to wake up again.

    I haven’t read Flashbang yet. Will check it out soon. :)

    I liked “Eat, Pray, Love” for the personal connection I have with it in terms of my love for Indonesia. I have only been to Bali three times, yet Elizabeth Gilbert has described things that I have yet to experience in Bali myself. Especially the one about biking. Last time I went there, my friends and I wanted to rent Vespas to better explore the island, but it was more cost-effective to get a car.

    I can’t wait for the movie to come out. I loved how the trailer depicted Indonesia so beautifully.

    I have yet to find out which one is my favourite non-fiction novel. Good you found yours. =)

    I’ve been wanting to go to Bali for years. Reading the book made me want to experience for myself the simple life over there. I think I remember a post of your Bali trip a few years ago (?)… would love to go there soon. Maybe in a year or two, hopefully. :)

    May I suggest Bali as your future honeymoon destination? Haha!

    I’ve always loved books, and I’m glad I finally have the time to read all I want this year. I still have a stack of unread ones, but I’m already planning to drop by the bookstore tomorrow. LOL! Good luck with your reading goal. ;)
