Book Challenge: Week 3

Two more books finished!

First up was A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table.  First, let me suggest that you DO NOT read this book if you are hungry.  Yes, there are lots of yummy recipes.  I am just dying to try the Banana Bread with Chocolate and Crystalized Ginger and the Cornbread with Cream.  Each recipe is prefaced by an essay about how the recipe comes into the author's life.  Great for those who love reading about food.  The author achieved what most bloggers secretly dream about:  her blog turned into a book deal  :D

Next, Anne of Green Gables (Sterling Classics).  I loved the PBS series that came out in the late 80's, but I never got around to reading the books.  When I was trolling the cheap nookbook section, I found the whole ebook set available for 99 cents.  Anne of Green Gables is absolutely charming!  I can't believe that a girl like me who loved the Little House series somehow missed out on reading about the adventures of Anne Shirley. After reading the first book, I realize that the TV series was so well done because it was faithful to the original story.  Hmmmm, I wonder if I can instant watch the series on Netflix.........

What have you been reading this week?
