I’ve said over on my Resources tab that I love to read.  Lately I’ve been a maniac on my library’s website, reserving all kinds of books.  Yesterday I went to the library on my lunch hour and had FOUR more books to pick up!

From top to bottom we have:

In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan – I feel like I’m the last person to read this book
The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz – because I’m a huge nerd who likes to read young adult vampire fiction
The Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier – the author is an Ironman triathlete on a plant-based diet
Simple Food for Busy Familiesby Jeannette Bessinger & Tracee Yablon-Brenner – I’m hoping to find some good recipes in here

And I already had these books at home:

From top to bottom:

Skinny Bitch in the Kitch by Rory Freedman & Kim Barnouin – I have the Skinny Bitch book, but wanted to check out the cookbook
This Crazy Vegan Life by Christina Pirello – I’ve been reading this book over the past couple weeks and plan to post a review soon
The Food Revolution by John Robbins – I heard this was really good
The Hip Chick’s Guide to Macrobiotics by Jessica Porter – hoping this is an introduction to macrobiotics
Veganomiconby Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero – authors of Baked Pumpkin Ziti!

Hopefully I’ll be able to read all these before I have to return them.  If not I can always just check them out again.  That’s the beauty of the library.  I love it!

What books are you reading right now?  Or what would you like to read if you had time?  They don’t have to be food-related books!

  1. Thanks for the book recommendations. I’m also looking to add to my library list.

    I have been reading food books for the past year or so. Just this week I read Dr. Joy’s “Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism.” It’s certainly not for the faint of heart, but it will make you think twice about eating meat.

  2. Nothing so weighty on my bookshelf. I like trashy romances, interspersed with a few thrillers, vintage/antique cookbooks, and farming or household how-to books. 🙂
