Julia Child by Laura Shapiro. Just into it, but it's already a good read.

Now that my Intro to Journalism and News Writing class is almost over, I won't have to read the textbook anymore: Amazon.com: Reporting for the Media: Fred Fedler,John R. Bender,Lucinda Davenport,Michael W. Drager: Books

So I can go back to the book I received for making a donation to NPR: Amazon.com: The New Kings of Nonfiction: Ira Glass: Books

"The Hungry Years: Confessions of a Food Addict" by William Leith. Cleverly written and very informative about food's effects on the body, the truth behind popular diets, the low-carb vs. low-fat debate, and so on. I recommend it.

I might read it or might now, don't know yet, cause I got it for my daughter to read while sitting 5 or 6 hours on a plane. The Secret Portrait by Lillian Stewart Carl. It's right up her alley as it's about Scotland. If she loves it and assures me it's an easy read, I'll read it while on a mini vacation with her.
