a feast of words
Book treats from Amazon. The book about W. G. Sebald I hope will challenge my brain cells a bit. The Theorin book is a Scandinavian mystery. I adore books set in Scandinavia. I have already begun reading this one.
The Needleman book was first published in 1995, before the current money crisis yet after the one that happened in the '90's. It is supposedly based on spiritual tenets, however a brief thumb through reveals lots of blather about money of the kind that makes my eyes cross. I think if I skip to the last 1/3 though I will find some thought provoking material.
The Kripalu Cookbook also was first published in the early 90's. I bought it to help me find new recipes on my campaign to reduce my meat consumption. And because M. Heart spoke about it after her visit to Kripalu. I have been to Kripalu several times and their vegetarian meals are to die for. I have a fairly large group of vegetarian cookbooks already, but it is always fun to thumb through a new one. In fact, I don't have a large appetite, sometimes none at all, and I find thumbing through a cookbook or two whets my lacking desire and gets me going on meal preps.
The Ludwig I sort of got by mistake thinking it was her most recent book which I have on pre-order at Amazon. But this is fun to look through, although I must say after awhile the projects in these types of books start looking very much the same. I am seeking challenge.
