Thanks so much, Deb! I am one of those who love Eat Pray Love, but I do know others who don't like it. I think you either love it or you hate it. I have never even heard of Cleaving I don't think. Good call on Kingsolver and Austen and P&P is a romantic book. It is a popular answer for a reason, right! By the way, I love, love, love that you said your TBR list is between sixty and a million. TOO awesome!
