What I’m reading

I decided to go book shopping today, instead of looking for some new shoes. I know, outrageous, right?

I bet you also thought that I would read really highbrow books, full of interesting facts and of great literary significance.

Wrong. I loves me some trashy novels. It’s cold and wet outside and I can’t think of anything better to do than read an entertaining book, whilst eating chocolate.
Current books

Oh, and I bought a cook book. Because I also loves me some cook books. If they weren’t so expensive and didn’t take up so much room, I’d buy new ones every week. Actually, it’s more about the room a cook book takes up that prevents me from buying them. And I know, you all are “but you can download recipes from the interweb“, but I love to have the actual book with a proper picture in front of me, so I can see what my culinary masterpiece is meant to look like at the end. I hate cook books with few or no pictures. I got Larousse Gastronomique for christmas last year, and although I am sure there are thousands of excellent recipes in it, I have no idea what they’re meant to look like so I haven’t used it at all.

Thanks to Karen over at Miscellaneous Mum for the book idea.

p.s. Deb if I don’t like the Time Traveller’s Wife you’re in big trouble!

    Oh no! I hope you like it. In amongst that lot I would make a beeline for the Cussler book. At the moment I'm reading a Ben Elton book.
