OK, y'all know how much I love a good book. I'm also usually very interested in books that have a focus on Spirituality. That said? I CANNOT get in to Oprah's pick, "A New Earth, Awakening to your Life's Purpose." I've even downloaded the audio version, as well as two of her podcasts with the author (She is really doing this book up - which is why I thought it would be such a great read. She's got online classes, interviews, forums. She's Presenting this book!) The genius is lost on me.
Is anyone else having a hard time with this book? Should I just put it down until things calm down a little in my life? Because, seriously... when someone is this pumped about a book I feel sort of like an idiot when I just don't get it. And, it's not that I'm trying to "buy into" the feeling of the book - I don't read these books necessarily because I agree with that they are writing about. I read them because I generally find all points of view interesting - and sometimes I learn from other's opinions. Usually they at least get me thinking, either in agreement or disagreement isn't the important thing. I like that they make me think and feel and search.
Life is weird right now, maybe chick lit would be a wise detour for me. Perhaps what I need right now is a bit of warm, funny, fluffy giggles. Because I? Am all about the intellectual side of life!!!! Right?
