Currently on the Night Stand...
I regret I have not been reading as much as I wish, blogs have been consuming most of my attention these days, which I can't complain about that! But this non-fiction book recommended by my father is a great story in theory, though filled with much fluff about daily mundane life. I will forge on with this one though because I do want to hear how it ends. Unlike the last three books I've picked up, things slowly trickle off after the third chapter, and they end up back on the shelf to be maybe continued at a later date. It doesn't help that I spend almost every weekend at the bookstore, so I'm constantly getting pulled in every direction like a kid in a candy shop. Do you ever have that problem?
While I was searching for the book image yesterday, I discovered the Food for Thought blog, and I am in love with this blog. I have been pining for years to have a Book Club with the feel from the the movie The Jane Austen Book Club. The book club I semi belong too is nice, but too far of a drive after a day at the office and it's held at a bookstore. I want the kind held at someones home, you know the kind where hors d'oeuvres are served with tea or wine, and it's more of a bonding thing than anything else. The house of Mrs. Food for Thought is the idyllic place for this. The way she reviews books is so up my alley. She finds a food theme in each book she reads, prepares that dish with a highly creative set and props with her amazing views from her Northern California home as a backdrop. The blend of books, comfort cuisine, photography, and setting make this a Top Notch blog in my book.
I spent most of yesterday morning going through her old posts, something this very busy girl rarely has time for... but I promise if you love books, food, and photography you will definitely appreciate this blog. I'm also thinking she should have the biggest Annual Book Club Potluck at her home, wouldn't that be grande?
I am hoping to participate in her next Food for Thought post on Nov. 27th! Find out how you can participate HERE!
P.S. You must see the Fondue in a Pumpkin post & quick before your Thanksgiving grocery shopping this weekend!
