From Scratch: Inside the Food Network by Allen Salken
I like to cook almost as much as I enjoy reading–and reading about cooking is the best of both worlds! I’ve been watching The Food Network for years, so I was eagerly looking forward to the release of this new book. I’ve only read about 100 pages but I’m really enjoying it so far. I love “behind-the-scenes” stories, and this book seems like it will provide a lot of great backstories about the chefs–past and present–that I’ve been watching for ages–plus it’s a great account of how a cable TV station was formed from the ground up. I’m just geeky enough to be interested in stuff like this! 🙂
What did you recently finish reading?
Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives: Stories From The Trailblazers Of Domestic Suspense edited by Sarah Weinman
This is a collection of fourteen short stories written from the 1940s through the mid-1970s. All were written by women, and all feature women as their main characters. These stories are short on blood and guts, but are filled with psychological suspense. I found most of them deliciously creepy–especially the ones written during the 40s and 50s. If you enjoy short story collections and are in the mood for suspense, you may like this collection!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Fair and Tender Ladies by Lee Smith
As always, this is subject to change! I’ve been meaning to read this one for quite awhile. I love books where the narrative is completely told in the form of letters to and from the characters (I may be doing a Tuesday Ten post on this soon!), but for some reason I’ve never read this one–even though it was published about 25 years ago. It may be time to take this one off my TBR shelf!
Have a great reading week, everyone!
