Book Club? - esgunn - 03-07-2009

Ok, So I really don't have time to do this or the extra funds to buy the book - but I just might anyway. But I came accross this and thought it might be a good book for the occasional book club.

A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table
In A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table, Molly Wizenberg recounts a life with the kitchen at its center. From her mother's pound cake, a staple of summer picnics during her childhood in Oklahoma, to the eggs she cooked for her father during the weeks before his death, food and memories are intimately entwined. You won't be able to decide whether to curl up and sink into the story or to head straight to the market to fill your basket with ingredients for Cider-Glazed Salmon and Pistachio Cake with Honeyed Apricots.

It is a brand new book out - so no used copies around. My library system has one copy and there are already 91 holds on it...Sad

I found out about it, because I occasionally read her blog.

printed out - sounds like a good read. Thanks Erin, maybe this one will get us all going again.

Thanks so much, Erin. This sounds good. After I finished Garlic and Sapphires, I was really sad. I want to get the James Beard Books Lorraine mentioned a while back and hope to pick them up at abesbooks soon, but for a current read, this sounds like a good one. I can't get it until the end of the month, but I'd be happy to join in a discussion a week or so after that. (I read G&S in two days. )

Sounds like it would be an interesting read.

abebooks has some copies. Many say "advance uncorrected proof"

Ordered - 4 bucks at Abebooks.

Ordered mine online from the county library. There are only a few people ahead of me.
