You Can’t Be Right Every Time

After this latest reading jag, I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be slowing my roll for a while.  Despite the prolific number of cookbooks I’ve managed to cart away from the library in the last week or so (HIGHLY recommend this technique), there’s a ton of stuff on my reserves list that will probably continue to be there for the next month or so.

Without further adieu…

Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth

And the Pursuit of Happiness, Maira Kalman

William & Kate: A Royal Love Story, Christopher Anderson

Elements of Style, Wendy Wasserstein

And as always, our collective reading-list 🙂

Anything by Jodi Picoult
Anything by Chelsea Handler (I’ve read My Horizontal Life – it’s good, but if you loved I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, you’ll find it tame)

Room
Unbearable Lightness
