bargain booksale (post #62718)

the latest email from Jessica's Biscuit arrived today and there looks to be something for everyone. Books by and about classic authors like MFK Fisher.... I just bought a new basket to keep my bedside reading. My nightstand was straining under the weight!

I apologize for the length of this post. The entire list is here.

What a bargain book bonanza we have for the readers out there! I can not count how many times you have told me that you not only cook from the books you buy, but read them "like novels." Pull up your most comfortable chair, put on your reading glasses (if you need them), and get ready to, well, read. Along with classics from M.F.K. Fisher, James Beard, Elizabeth David, and Waverly Root there are David Schweid's Consider the Eel, Ruth Reichl's Comfort me with Apples, and Vincent Schiavelli's Many Beautiful Things.

A good book should leave you... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. ~William Styron, interview, Writers at Work
