My Read Piles, March 2012

Here’s what’s in my read pile, NONFICTION:

Here’s my FICTION read pile:

THE SWEET LIFE IN PARIS has what appears to be some good recipes.  But, of course, it’s all about sugar and white flour.  There are, however, a few recipes that use buckwheat flour.  Buckwheat, strictly speaking is not a grain.  It’s a kind of fruit.  I have a mix from our CSA, Cheryl Wixson’s Kitchen, that is a chocolate cake made with buckwheat.  I will try that…

I enjoyed the cultural discussions of how different the French are from Americans.  My Cultural Studies studies demonstrated quite clearly that “we are NOT all alike under the sun.”  In fact, different population groups are radically different in many ways.  So, it was fun to read about these cultural difference.

I’m reading LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN now.  It’s beautifully written.  I’m about half way through, but am only reading a few pages at night as I’ve been going to bed late, and I’m tired.  My daytime reading is mostly nonfiction–so I can keep up with the essays and “interesting information” for this blog.
