Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.
Letters to a Young Scientist by Edward O. Wilson – a lovely, inspiring little book of letters from the Pulitzer Prize winning biologist.
My Paris Kitchen by David Lebovitz – I really, really did not like Lebovitz’s memoir of moving to Paris, finding him arrogant, bizarrely unobservant, and altogether too interested in sweets. But for some reason I still picked up this cookbook and, more shockingly, read it straight through. And it’s excellent. Well-written anecdotes, appetizing recipes, and a wonderful variety of foods – all the things that were missing from his memoir.
Great Gardens of Italy by Monty Don and Derry Moore – I leave for Italy in just one month and, even though I don’t anticipate any garden touring on my holiday, this is just the thing to help get me in the mood.
