2016 books and holiday reading

I must have a thing for "B's" because two of my very favorite things start with that letter: beads and books. And when it comes to books, I really enjoy the Goodreads web site. It allows me to see what my friends are reading and more importantly, allows me to record books I have read so I don't buy them all over again. Yes, I have done that! And one of the best things is seeing my year in review which Goodreads publishes each year.

And to close out the year, I made a trip to the library yesterday to pick up some holiday reading. As I was checking out, our librarian told me about a book she had just finished and said it was one of the best books she read this year. "Would you like me to get it for you?" And that's how "The Secret Keeper" came to be in this stack. My motto is never turn down a recommendation by a librarian!

Actually the bottom book is mine as you can tell by its well-worn appearance. The cover was lost years ago and I chuckle at the sub-title, "Living the High-Carbohydrate Way." This was actually a considered a good thing back when the book was published in 1980. I should probably buy a book cover for it so I don't lose any more pages.

Carbs aside, this cookbook contains one of my all-time favorite recipes for turkey chowder and I plan to make some for our household as well as for friends who have been spending time at the hospital. I don't think Jane will mind if I offer you a glimpse of that terrific recipe.
