On Jacqui's Bookshelf ...

Just started to read ... Kink by Stephanie Clifford-Smith
Synopsis: From bondage parties and peeping toms, to plushies and foot worshippers ... and beyond.  This is one woman's sometimes mind-boggling, mostly hilarious, always fascinating investigation into sexual fetishes in the burbs.

Just finished reading ... Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert
Synopsis: At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who’d been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both were survivors of previous horrific divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which—after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing—gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Having been effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by delving into this topic completely, trying with all her might to discover through historical research, interviews, and much personal reflection what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is.

Jacqui's Review: Interesting read although I didn't enjoy this one as much as her first one.  She has a way of drawing you into the inner ramblings of her mind which make people like me feel that at least someone else in the world over analysis most things. 2.5 out of 5.
