Books to be read (and foods that go with them)

This is the list for a book challenge I found through a friend (http://bookishnerd.com). Howard’s End is on the Landing is a book of essays about spending a year not buying books, but reading books from the author’s own bookshelves. So it ties neatly to this reading challenge: The Official TBR (to be read) Pile Challenge http://roofbeamreader.com/2014/11/24/announcing-the-official-2015-tbr-pile-challenge/

Here’s MY 2015 TBR list:

  1. The Art of Teaching by Jay Pazini (2005)
  2. Hidden in Plain View, A Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad by Jacqueline L Tobin and Raymond G. Dobard, PhD. (1999)
  3. Odd Lots, Seasonal Notes of a City Gardener, by Thomas C. Cooper (1995)
  4. Winter Morning Walks: one hundred postcards to Jim Harrison, by Ted Kooser (2000)
  5. The Poetry Home Repair Manual by Ted Kooser (2005)
  6. Good Prose, The Art of Nonfiction by Tracy Kidder and Richard Todd (2013)
  7. Weathering Winter, A Gardener’s Daybook by Carl H. Klaus  (1997)
  8. A Godward Life, by John Piper (1997)
  9. The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan (2006) (I am so embarrassed I have not read this yet!)
  10. Animals Make Us Human by Temple Grandin (2010)
  11. Dragon Keeper by Robin Hobb (2010)
  12. How Proust Can Change Your Life by Alain de Bottom (1997)

Alternates

  1. Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner (2009)
  2. C.S. Lewis, Memories and Reflections, by John Lawlor (1998)

Sadly, I do not yet have a copy of Howard’s End Is on the Landing, so it is not yet on the TBR pile list.

And never fear…I’ll tie this in to food as I go along. The initial post about this is form 1/2/15.

    The Tracy Kidder book is probably going on my TBR list for a later date. I am intrigued.

      I apparently have to review all these books. I’ll tie them into Goodreads, as they are not all on there yet. So at least you can see what I think of it.

    Interesting list. I enjoyed the Alain de Botton book on Proust. Good luck with the challenge.

      Thanks! And I’m glad for the recommendation – I found this book at an interesting used book store, but didn’t know anything about it.
