Before I moved, I made a serious point in getting rid of a ton of books and turned the majority of my library digital. Yet, I still had a bunch of very heavy boxes because… cookbooks. I love them and I’m always excited to buy a new one.
Cassie’s newest cookbook has been patiently waiting for me at the post office and I finally got around to picking it up today. It’s going to be a few weeks before we have a functional kitchen, but I’m looking forward to Goji Berry, Boconut & Dark Chocolate Truffles, Salmon Cakes, and the like.

It feels like it’s been forever since I last read a real book, I’ve gotten so used to my beloved Kindle. A few weeks back I went to the spa, so I didn’t want to bring the reader (not sure what I was more afraid of, it getting stolen or steamed) – I was surprised to find that the tiny English books section in the little bookstore in my parents’ town had one of the authors I recently discovered. (Of course then I didn’t end up reading it and only picked it up now because I finished the earlier books of the series.)
I’ve become a big fan of Lisa Gardner and her crime novels. They’re not literary masterpieces (which is probably a good thing, given that I read while commuting and before going to bed), but the characters are multidimensional and relatable and she keeps me guessing throughout the book.
I’m a little more than halfway through and I have to say that I can’t wait to go back to the ebook reader. ;) Whatever it is that makes people appreciate printed books more than ebooks, I can’t see the appeal. (Granted, this is a paperback, but still…)
