I finally received my copy of Ken Follett’s “The Pillars of the Earth” this morning. I’m still a little surprised with myself that I am reading an “Oprah Book Club” book at the time it’s The book club book. So far there’s been a hanging, a cursing, and a stampeding war horse and I’m only on page 28. I have 945 more pages to go! I found myself interested in this book because of the time setting being in the Middle Ages. I find this period very romantic, dangerous, cold, and wonderful.
Are you reading anything “trendy” right now? Trendy meaning something that a lot of people are reading at the same time? Like “Eat, Pray, Love” or something on the New York Times Top 10 Best Seller List?
I did order Ruth Reichl’s first memoir “Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table” and look forward to checking out the beginnings of the present Gourmet Magazine Editor In Chief. I did read an excerpt from “Tender at the Bone” and laughed my butt off so I’m pretty excited about reading the book. Did reading “Garlic & Sapphires” inspire you to check out some of Reichl’s previous memoirs and/or Gourmet Magazine?
