Book Description:

How many men does it take to find true love?

Delilah Darling’s magic number was supposed to be twenty. She always thought she’d find the perfect guy by the time she’d slept with twenty of them. But when she wakes up naked in her disgusting boss’s bed after a drunken night out, she’s filled with regret — and realizes she’s hit her self-imposed limit. Unwilling to up her number but unable to imagine a life of celibacy, Delilah does what any girl in her situation would do: she tracks down every man she’s ever slept with in a last-ditch effort to make it work with one of them.

A hilarious romp through Delilah’s past loves, 20 Times a Lady proves that in the end, numbers don’t matter. True love will come when you’re open and ready to accept it. – From ‘HarperCollins Publishers’ book jacket

Water For Elephants

Movie Release Date: February 22nd, 2011
Directed By: Francis Lawrence
Starring: Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon
Movie plot:

A veterinary student abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet. – imdb.com

Book Release Date: May 26, 2006
Originally Published as: Water For Elephants
Written By: Sara Gruen
Book Description:

Orphaned and penniless at the height of the Depression, Jacob Jankowski escapes everything he knows by jumping on a passing train—and inadvertently runs away with the circus. So begins Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen’’s darkly beautiful tale about the characters who inhabit the less-than-greatest show on earth.

Jacob finds a place tending the circus animals, including a seemingly untrainable elephant named Rosie. He also comes to know Marlena, the star of the equestrian act—and wife of August, a charismatic but cruel animal trainer. Caught between his love for Marlena and his need to belong in the crazy family of travelling performers, Jacob is freed only by a murderous secret that will bring the big top down.

Water for Elephants is an enchanting page-turner, the kind of book that creates a world that engulfs you from the first page to the last. A national bestseller in Canada and a New York Times bestseller in the United States, this is a book destined to become a beloved fiction classic. – From ‘HarperCollins’ book jacket
