Book Recommendations

This is a cry for help. That phrasing makes it sound so much more urgent than the actual situation. I'm on vacation and finding out how much you can get accomplished in a day when there is no commute and no stores to travel between. I've been making delicious dinners every night and I'll be sure to post recipes in the near future. I've also been plowing through books. I mean, I've read two and they were both pretty light reads, but its still been quite satisfying. I've read Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl which I loved and would highly recommend for a fun quick read. It's about all the disguises Ruth would dress up in as a restaurant critic for the New York Times. I also read The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing which I was okay. I enjoyed the writing style and found it to be a nice quick read. Now I need help.from anyone willing to offer help - what other books should I read this week? What are your favorites?


  1. This is Katie. I'm supposed to read The Killer Angels for work so maybe you can and tell me whatever I need to know? Otherwise I've got nothing as I get all my recommendations from you...

  2. The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball is super good (title sounds bad, but it's not) it's a great book about community support agriculture. Have you read Hunger Games? I liked those a lot. I'm currently reading The River King by Alice Hoffman and I'm really enjoying that. The Help is very good. The Art of Racing in the Rain is also good. Happy reading :o)
