I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day celebrating with food, family, and friends. We’re out doing our leisurely Black Friday shopping today, but if you need a break from the hustle and bustle, take a look at my current roundup of books.
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
The Big Short by Michael Lewis – Lewis has an incredible ability to take complex topics and break them down in easy to understand language. I actually watched The Big Short movie first (highly recommend) and am enjoying the book just as much.
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss – This is my second time through the Kingkiller series and it’s just phenomenal. I’m still anxiously waiting the release of the third book, but for now I’ll keep rereading the first two.
Rick Steve’s Ireland Travel Guide – My library came through big time after I discovered they didn’t have any Ireland travel guides! They hunted down a recent version from another local library for me. I usually don’t mind researching trips online, but there’s just so much information packed in these books. It’s hard to resist!
Shadows Across Dakota by Kristine Bone – Kris kindly offered me a free copy of her book to read, which is such a delightful blogging bonus. I love giving new authors a chance. Her story is Christian historical fiction set in the Dakota territory in the late 1800’s. Check it out if you’re interested in American history or Christian fiction.
From Around the Web:
Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas – Food Network’s collection of 45 recipes to use up those leftovers.
Peanut Butter Comparison Test – Only for the most devoted peanut butter fans. Jif is the only brand for me. What’s your favorite?
