It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? — 9 Comments

  1. I think you posted about this kind of thing before, but I’m the kind of person who can only handle one book at a time, haha. How do you do all this?

    Congrats on the blog award, by the way! That’s really cool!

    Okay, what is Wade reading … I’m about a third of the way through “The Last Boy”, a biography about Mickey Mantle, the Yankees’ superstar of the ’50s and ’60s. It’s great in that it’s more regular biography than your typical sports biography with all kinds of stats on every page. More narrative, and you feel like you’re really getting to know Mantle as the small-town, blue-collar background boy/man that he was, thrust into the national spotlight but keeping his naive and some would say charming personality throughout his life.

  2. Happy Birthday Joy! Your chocolate chip bread sounds amazing! I just finished Eats Soots & Leaves and about to start Peg Kehret’s Small Steps. Looking forward to it!

  3. I am a bit late here, but my read on Monday and now is The Cookbook Library: Four Centuries of the Cooks Writers, and Recipes That Made the Modern Cookbook by Anne Willan. The teeny tiny type in the sidebars and boxed text is hurting my eyes. Grumble. Grumble. It is a comprehensive survey of famous cookbooks, beginning in the Middle Ages, but I wonder how much of it will stick with me. The historical recipes are interesting.

    • What a terrific concept for a book. It never occurred to me that there would be a history of cookbooks.
