Haven't read that one yet! I'm saving it for a pool book this summer. Is it good? I love Kathy Reichs. I must say the show disappoints me because Tempe in the books is NOT Aspergers. I think the characters are richer in the books.

So far so good...haven't read much, too many new toys. Personally, I watch "Bones" for the dialog, which is funny and Angel...er...Seely Booth.

New Toys List:
Laptop Computer
2009 Subaru Outback
Cook'n Recipe Organizer
New storage for our CD's and DVD's

Then there is the satck of books we've managed to accumulate over the last three days. Not to mention cooking, eating, sleeping and getting ready to go back to work.

Just finished "Sh*t My Dad Says".

Absolutely hilarious. Out loud belly laughs through the whole thing.

Short read, though, only 100-couple pages.

Anthony Bourdain's new book, Medium Raw. I like it, but then I liked Kitchen Confidential as well. If you didn't like Kitchen Confidential, you most likely won't like this one. And if you've never read "KC", much of this somewhat "sequel" will be oblivious to you. It's a bit different from & not quite as good as "KC", but in the same general style.

I liked Medium Raw. Not quite as "raw", but Bourdain's writing skills are much better now.

I'm reading "Reflexions," Richard Olney's autobiography. For those of you who are not familiar with him by name, he wrote the Time/Life series "The Good Cook" that has become a collectors' item.
