A Trace of Smoke (Hannah Vogel) by Rebecca Cantrell
A Trace of Smoke (Hannah Vogel)

moon, May 7, 2010

The first of the Hannah Vogel mystery series, it has all the makings of a must-read: a crime reporter in 1931 Berlin, murder in the family and the dark underbelly of the top ranks of the rising Nazi party.

Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals by Jamie Oliver
Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals

moon, November 6, 2009

At last, a book for those of us who are lazy and end up with take-out because we don't want to be gourmet cooks. His ideas make sense to us right brain people who aren't comfortable just adding a dab of this and a dab of that to make something taste great. Thank you, Jamie.

The Coral Thief by Rebecca Stott
The Coral Thief

moon, September 27, 2009

The book is hypnotic and the reader has to be in a mood to tolerate Stott's slow ethereal story-telling.

Writing Places: The Life Journey of a Writer and Teacher by William Zinsser
Writing Places: The Life Journey of a Writer and Teacher

moon, May 20, 2009

Zinsser wrote the primer on how to write any non-fiction....now he is showing, not telling, how it is done. His autobiography is scrappy! With clarity and light-heartedness he lets the reader/writer sit on his side of the desk.
