As many of you know, I am an Economist and an Accountant. So when I tell you I have an obsession about reading, you probably think I have the latest Economics book by my bedside, NOT!!! No way, no how!!
However, since my hubby has put a ring on my finger… ummm, a long time ago, my reading obsession has always been cookbooks. Yes, cookbooks. I have no less than four cookbooks next to my bed. When I couldn’t afford cookbooks, the library was my favorite stop.
As I read cookbooks, I add post it notes.. for future menus. I do occasionally read other books, I have a Kindle but would never put a cookbook on it. I have to look at the pictures. And, I did read two non-cooking books on our vacation last week… it was tough.
So what books am I reading?
A gorgeous book about a wonderful inn near Knoxville. Sam Beall has great recipes and beautiful pictures.
The Lee Brothers: Southern Cookbook
Like me, they are transplanted Yankees who have great appreciation for Southern Cooking and a love of all things Southern.
The Lee Brothers: Simple Fresh
Another beautiful book, simpler than the previous book. More for the home cook.
And of course:
I love her stories, recipes and pictures.
My obsession knows no end… I give cookbooks to my friends for birthdays, Christmas, etc. I scour yard sales, library sales, half.com and used book stores for cookbooks.
So what is your reading obsession?
