I've had a productive reading week, which always makes me feel good. I've got back into the habit of reading for an hour or so in the afternoons when I get home from work. It's amazing what a difference that makes. This week I managed to finish TESTIMONY by Anita Shreve (I'll have my review in a few days) and I also reviewed a book that came out Tuesday called BOUND SOUTH by Susan Rebecca White. That review is here.
I'm almost finished reading MURDER MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH by Nancy Martin. It's the 7th in a series from the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries. They're fun, light who-dun-its that I got hooked on a few years ago. Nancy Martin has a witty writing style that she incorporates into murder mysteries and even manages to maintain a love story that adds just the right amount of romance. I've read that this book is the last of this series, but I hope its not true.
I'm real excited about a new series I've started on Saturdays called Gettin' Toasted. One of my favorite chef's, Eric Ripert, has a video series on his website, Avec Eric, featuring meals cooked in a toaster oven. Yes, a world renowned chef cooking in a toaster oven! These are simple, quick recipes perfect for 1 or 2 servings. Each week I make one of his recipe and post my results on Saturday. Yesterday I featured Mustard Crusted Salmon Fillet.
My local library held a book sale today and I came away with some good reads. I got two Patricia Cornwell books, one from Stuart Woods and The Da Vinci Code. I was pretty happy with my finds and look forward to reading them.
Well, that's about it for me and my books this week. In the week ahead, I'll have a few reviews and another recipe from chef Eric. I hope all of you had a productive week in books too. I'll be going now to catch up on some blog reading and then its back to the books! Have a wonderful Sunday!
