I did a little thrifting with the Mr. after Christmas and found several titles that were on my wishlist. My hope is to read away the winter!
The cookbook is an old friend, sort of. My mom has this exact printing. I actually gave it back to her for Christmas because I am hoping she will make me one of her awesome angel food cakes. I had looked on eBay for the book but did not want to spend the money at the time. I was so happy to find it at a local antique mall.
But back to my reading plan. I have already finished my first book of 2016, His Good Opinion, by Nancy Kelley. If you love Jane Austin, you will love this book. I started to read the next book in the trilogy, Brides of Pemberley, but gave it up. It was very different from the first book which actually had Jane Austin as its guide. The second book was ho-hum, predictable, not very interesting.
I hope to mix things up this winter, reading fiction and nonfiction. I have several nonfiction books on my bookshelf that I have read and would enjoy reading again. Perhaps I will gather them and post a picture of them here in the future.
