I reviewed two books set during World War II last week; the second one was for our book club discussion:
For Weekend Cooking, I reviewed the latest book by Marion Nestle of Food Politics: Book Review: Why Calories Count by Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim
I finished Miracle at St. Anna just in time for the book club meeting. That turns out to be something of an advantage because then it’s fresh in my mind. But I was a bit panicky there at the end.
I also finished Food Fight by Daniel Imhoff about the 2012 Farm Bill that’s making news. I’ll write about that for Weekend Cooking on Saturday.
My current lunch time reading is The Hundred Year Diet: America’s Voracious Appetite for Losing Weight by Susan Yager, an interesting look at the history of weight reduction programs and advice in the US.
The other print book I’m reading now is a novel I received for review: Abdication by Juliet Nicolson. Isn’t that a stunning cover? I’m sure it’s meant to appeal to all of us Downton Abbey fans.
I’m also still reading the e-book of No Longer a Gentleman by Mary Jo Putney. Apparently, I’m not going to be a fast reader of e-books on my phone.
I want to participate in a discussion on Goodreads of Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and I’m way behind. I may have to set aside Abdication for a little while in favor of catching up with the conversation.
It’s Monday! What Are Your Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Be sure to check out her post today to see her selections and the list of links to all the other participating bloggers.
