Rona, what did you think of Like Water for Chocolate? I was blown away by that beautiful book :)

Hi Heather, I absolutely loved it, too! I finished it in two days because I just couldn't put it down. I want to rent the movie now too (although, in my opinion the books are always better - but I'd like to see how they adapted it for a film)... It reminded me of movies like Chocolat & The Princess Bride...

Emma | 279 comments Hi Rona,

I am currently teaching a class on the Enneagram. I am curious as to how you came across it. What do you think of it? I have never seen anyone else (outside of Academia) who has read about it. Which begs the question, are you in a psychology related field?

Rose (obsessedreader9) | 215 comments You have so many spectacular books on your list, and yet you feel that The History of Love was your favorite? That amazes me: I thought the book was dreadful.

Rose
