Obviously I haven’t been posting much lately. I keep trying new recipes, all the time. Mostly I’m working through Lindsay Nixon’s Happy Herbivore cookbooks. I love food. I love eating. I especially love eating healthy food that won’t make me sick. But I’m starting to face the hard fact that I don’t love cooking. I love recipes, and talking about food, and reading about food, and definitely eating it. I just don’t love making it. Audiobooks help me do it without getting too bored, but mostly I’d rather be reading.
That realization, combined with encouragement from several of my friends, has led me to consider changing the focus of this blog. Because as much as I love to share recipes, I simply don’t do it. Whereas EVERY book I read I write up a review of it when I’m done, to help others get an idea of the book, as well as to remind myself if I forget later. So if I’m already sharing these opinions on a social networking site, why not share them here, for anybody who wants to read them. Not just my fellow social networkers. If you’re not interested in book reviews, I understand. If you are, well, I read a lot, especially lately. I read a lot of young adult fiction, especially fantasy, as well as literary fiction and non fiction about cooking, the environment, history, biographies, etc. So I’ll try to post at least one book review, or at least update–you guessed it–once a week or more, going forward. Enjoy.
