Activity from Eat Pray Love
Posted by Team Swagbucks on Fri, January 27th, 2012 at 10:00 am
Welcome to the weekly gathering of the Swagbucks Book Club. Today we will be discussing Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert but as usual we have a little bit of business first.
Thank you to all 2,292 people who voted last week to choose our next selection. The winner was Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. Here’s a quick synopsis from Publisher’s Weekly:
I hope you will join us in reading Sarah’s Key which author Risa Miller sums up with, “Sarah’s Key unlocks the star crossed, heart thumping story of an American journalist in Paris and the 60-year-old secret that could destroy her marriage. This book will stay on your mind long after it’s back on the shelf.” We will meet the first or second Friday in March for that discussion.
Today we are discussing Eat Pray Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia. Before we begin I have to be honest and say that I have not finished this book, I’m still stuck in India. It is not for lack of interest but sometimes life (and Spirit Week) get in the way and reading takes a backseat. I will begin the discussion but feel free to post your own questions if there are revelations from the last half of the book not being represented. I humbly apologize for not completing my task but feel confident that you guys can help pick up my slack. Every month I’m blown away by the insightful comments you contribute. And if you see a comment you particularly appreciate, don’t forget to “like” it. The two users whose comments receive the most “likes” will receive a free copy of next month’s selection, Sarah’s Key. I will also be hooking up about 50 users who contribute most to the discussion with 25 Swag Bucks. Okay, enough out of me, let’s get this party started. It is Fun At Work Day after all!
Update: Congratulations to ShellyAnnSings, meekahdoo and redhead6362 for each snagging a physical copy of next month’s selection, Sarah’s Key! Originally we had planned to give away 2 copies but meekahdoo and redhead6362 tied for second place in the number of “likes” this week so we expanded the giveaway to three. Thanks to everyone for participating!

Posted by Team Swagbucks on Fri, January 6th, 2012 at 10:00 amHappy New Year and Happy New Book! I will admit that I was not completely on board with this month’s selection, Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, but that was before I started reading it. It was probably all the hype surrounding the book and subsequent movie plus my own assumptions about someone who can ... Read More »
