15 Day Challenge [Day 7]

[Day 7]: Recommend a book for us to read. Why is it important/special to you?

This is a great book with Ellen’s life journey that makes the reader reflect on their own lives…

Lately I haven’t been reading a lot of books “just for fun.” The latest one I read was The Hunger Games, just because the movie was coming out and I like reading the books before I go watch the movies. The Hunger Games book was alright…However, if I could recommend any book for my blog visitors it would be Ellen Burstyn’s Lessons in Becoming Myself.

I am not a big Oprah watcher, but a while ago I stumble upon the Oprah show and pretty much got hooked when Academy Award Winning actress Ellen Burstyn was being interviewed about her newly published book. The interview itself was pretty awesome, but she started talking about her life stories (all featured in her book) I just couldn’t stop watching. To read more about the interview from the show just click here.

The book itself a wonderful autobiography. It starts off with her talking about her childhood and the struggles she went through, stories about her lovers, her career, and most importantly the journey that made her become the person she is today. The whole book is full of details because she kept journals, which makes me think about the idea of blogging as journaling and how, one day, we will be able to look back at these posts to reminisce on the people that we once were. I totally recommend this book…
