Pass The Book: The Sixth

Welcome to February's Pass The Book:


A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg has been, the front cover tells me, a New York Times bestseller. So it's just possible that some of you have already read it. But if it's as new to you as it was to me, then you are in for a treat!

Before the book Molly created the Orangette blog - a feast of writing and recipes still very much worth a browse. A Homemade Life draws out her writing and collects together her recipes beautifully.

As I read, I confess, I began to feel a little envious of her enthusiasm - no, her family's, enthusiasm for food and for cooking it. It was never really a big thing in my family: we have always been makers rather than bakers. But if ever I were to write a memoir, I'd like it to turn out a lot like this. But with more pins, and probably a zipper foot for good measure.

Check out her blog, then put your name down for a chance to read her book. I think you'll like it. The usual rules apply - it's all on the Pass The Book page (together with as much up to date information about the other books as I can gather). Internationals are welcome - and so are newcomers! Simply leave a comment if you are interested and I'll draw a name in a week's time.

Before I go today I'd like to thank both Deb and Rinda for their lovely Thank You cards. The miles disappear when the post brings a note from a friend. Thank you!
