I can’t give you a life you love, but I might give you a book after the jump.
I sometimes get the opportunity to review books here at Casa de PastaQueen. Recently I received a copy of Live a Life You Love!: 7 Steps to a Healthier, Happier, More Passionate You by Dr. Susan Biali. The blurb was very promising, telling me that “the author recounts how she went from a depressed, unfulfilled medical resident, to a flamenco dancing physician performing on an international stage.” How cool, I thought. It’s like Grey’s Anatomy meets Dancing with the Stars!
I received Dr. Biali’s book and read through it this week. I greatly admire the author’s brave life choices, which included ditching an unfulfilling though lucrative medical career to pursue dance, something she was truly passionate about. However, the book didn’t quite click for me and I ended up liking the idea of the book better than the book itself. But as an author myself, I don’t want to stomp on anyone’s hard work with my clodhoppers. (I don’t even own any clodhoppers.) This book might be just what somebody else is looking for, so I’m giving it away in the hopes that it will find a warm home with a cozy bookshelf and controlled humidity to house its tender, acid-free, pages.
If you’re interested in winning a copy of Dr. Biali’s book, leave a comment telling me what dream you would like most to pursue, no matter how outrageous or silly it might seem. Contest ends at 11:59pm EST on Sunday, March 21, 2010. Winner will be chosen randomly.
