Traded some old cookbooks for them on swaptree. I don't even look at my newer cookbooks much so that was a great trade.

I'm just finishing the latest Mistress of Death novel by Ariana Franklin. Interesting series. For reading to my elderly friends I'm reading Je Ne Sais Quois and Letters to Myself, in turn (I may not have the titles exactly correct, one is about "foreign" words that enter the English language, the other is letters women write if they could advise themselves at a younger age).

vagriller, have you read his other ones? The Oath I think is what the other one is called. They really make you think.

I'm reading Poisoned Tarts by GA McKevett.

LOVED The Secret Life of Bees. One of my all-time favorites....It was also great as an audio book while driving in the car.

Just finished reading "The Sweet Life in Paris," by David Lebovitz. It's not a cookbook, but there are some lovely recipes included anyway.

If you've been to Paris, it will make you homesick.

There are a lot of great suggestions in this thread. After I'm done the series I'm reading (by Lynn Kurland - historical paranormal romance), I'll start at the beginning and go from there!
