Not as good as Mindy's book, but worth the read if you pick it up at the library (don't pay full price for it). I love Ellen and all, but it was just o.k.
And speaking of just o.k. books, "In The Garden of Beasts" by Erik Larson sure seems to be getting a lot of hype, but it was sort of a dry read for me. But hey, look at the previous two books I just read. Not a lot of substance there.
It did help me clear up some of my questions about why Americans didn't do more for the Jews during Hitler's power. Having just gone to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC I had a few new questions on my mind. Interesting, but not a beach read.
As I age well into my 30's I find that one of the things I am enjoying more now is listening to talk radio. I'm pretty sure I have ear hair now and my nose hair needs trimmed.
Anyways, I heard local author Kathleen Flinn on a program talking about her book "Kitchen Counter Cooking School". I immediately went out and picked it up at the library.
I bet you thought I was going to say I bought it, nope, I'm too cheap for that! Didn't you see my post on how I like to have fun?
I'm not one of those people who watches Top Chef or Julia Childs (is she still on...or alive?). I don't even have cable with those fancy cooking shows, but I do know people really get into those kinds of things. And by people I mean, people that aren't me. So it surprised me that I actually really liked this book.
So there you have it. A few books to keep you reading. Have you read anything good lately?
