One thing I love to do post-holiday is curl up with new books. Here's what I'm reading right now:
Tales of Beedle the Bard - I can't resist another J.K. Rowling!
Martha Stewart's Cooking School - Arranged by cooking technique and full of insight into equipment, ingredients, and every other aspect of the kitchen.
The Gentle Art of Domesticity by Jane Brocket - A look at domestic crafts such as knitting, quilting, baking, and sewing as artistic endeavors. A premise that everyday things can and should be aesthetically pleasing, and that there is value in the homemade.
The Camera by Ansel Adams. This is actually a book I gave Alexi years ago. He suggested I read it recently after yet another conversation with him about "how do I"... The book has detailed advice on camera components such as lenses, shutters, and light meters. (I have had an interest in photography as far back as elementary school, when I learned to develop film and print pictures. Alexi has also long been interested in photography and is greatly interested in its technical aspects. I am not interested in the technical, except as a means to an end. )
What are you reading right now?
