I've also been enjoying "The Only Bake Sale Cookbook You'll Ever Need", by Laurie Wolf and Pam Abrams (HarperCollins, 2008) and wish I had the time to test each recipe in it.
I've just borrowed Alice Waters' "The Art of Simple Food", (Clarkson N. Potter, 2007) which I have yet to start.
I also am reading Steve Berry's "The Venetian Betreyal" (a thriller).
I have taken advantage of electronic media and have downloaded books to listen to while walking. It makes the time go faster for me when I exercise.
My son and I have completed the children's versions of Moby Dick and Robin Hood. We might take a stab at Ivanhoe next, but he wants to read Moby Dick over again.
Thank goodness for libraries :-)
