I've been keeping track of my reading since 1999, and I've added everything I can remember to Goodreads. I hope, by the end of the year, to push my total recorded reads over 5,000 books. Right now I am at 4,884. I think I can do it....
....though I won't do it this week. I didn't finish anything.
On the other hand, I am reading a lot (a LOT) of books. Here are the books I'm reading right now:
The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas
Arsene Lupin, Gentleman-Thief
Paris Sweets: Great Desserts from the City's Best Pastry Shops
Each Tiny Spark
The Okay Witch
Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World
Free book vending machines have been unveiled in New York City. Take a look at this amazing fourteen year old girl who helped with the unveiling here.
I tried making French lemon shortbread, Sablés au Citron, this week. It was delicious.
My husband and I traveled to Midlothian, Texas with a group from the Houston Gem and Mineral Society to a mine where we hunted for fossil shark teeth and fossil shells, as well as pyrite.
We also made a stop at the Mineral Wells Fossil Park where we found hundreds of crinoids. Unfortunately I also had a close encounter with a cactus. Ouch!
