Returned to the library, and picked up another non-cookbook cooking book: "My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life" by Ruth Reichll. I'm more hopeful for this book, since I've seen Ruth Reichl on "The Chew" and she has been interesting to watch and listen to. I should be offline for the night soon, and plan on cracking the book open for a a bit of reading before hitting the sack.
Thanks for that link to Goodreads CG. I read the free preview and it looks like something I'd like too.

This is my current read and I'm reminded again why Jeffery Archer is one of my favorite authors. I'm chomping at the bit for book number 2 of the Clifton series.

Just past the halfway point in this book, but I couldn't wait to say how absolutely delighted I am by it! I'm savoring every nuance of Ruth's writing as if it were a delicious morsel of food. If you were a subscriber, or even picked up a copy from time to time, I think you would find this book a great read.

Eons ago, when I was a sweet young home cook, I subscribed to Gourmet in hopes that I could become very proficient in the kitchen. Was a bit overwhelmed and let the subscription slide. Things like a new house, new kids, and a corporate move interrupted playing in the kitchen. Then, once we moved and and I got my kitchen settled, I started to play again. By the time I thought I was finally up to resubscribing, Goumet was gone. This book lays out the process that Ruth used to heal from Gourmet Magazine closing on her watch. I fully understand, since I feel that cooking was what got me through the dark parts of trying to adjust to having to move.

I was enjoying that book so much that I slowed down on my reading the last couple of chapters just to make it last longer. Looking at all of the little Post-It flags sticking up from the "copy this" recipes makes me wonder if it might be cheaper to just buy my own book.

On to my next one tomorrow. It's another non-fiction, "I ain't an athlete, lady-- " by former baseball player John Kruk. Could be interesting...

I had some books come in from the library that I just started: Anybody Can Do Anything and The Plague and I, both by Betty MacDonald, along with The Tracker by Ton Brown, Jr waiting in the wings. I was halfway through Master of the Game by Sidney Sheldon and Reflex by Dick Francis, both of which are on hold right now since I own those two and I wanted to read the library books first.

Aaaaannd.......now I'm reading The Tracker and Horse Tradin' by Ben K. Greene just arrived at the library. And wonders of wonders, I am now 25 out of 26 on the hold list to get The Big Short (book). I may end up reading that in December, the way that line is moving along.
