Books on the Shelf, Books at the Bedside, Books in the Kitchen

the lure of forgotten titles and favorite stories can be deliciously distracting, not to mention inspire a Friday Five theme.

Share with us some of your favorites:

A COOKBOOK:
FullSizeRender-2

I’m cooking California these days.  Think it’s due to a memory I’m savoring–a memory of the last bite I had at Chez Panisse Cafe.  A verbena panna cotta that just slid gently down my throat.  Here are some of the books lying ready on my kitchen counter.

A NOVEL: Where to begin?  A recent favorite All the Light We Cannot See; an all-time best book ever favorite HHHH which tells the story of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in Prague; one that launched me on a trail of a genre–Spring Moon.  There are so many favorites on my shelf.

A NONFICTION BOOK: 

When I’m looking for inspiration, I often turn to poetry. But sometimes biographies do the trick–here’s a look at some that I love and cannot bear to part withIMG_2047

A WELL-THUMBED BOOK TO WHICH YOU OFTEN TURN
Unknown Without a doubt, Jesus of Nazareth by Luise Schottroff and Dorothee Soelle.  

A BOOK YOU HAVE FREQUENTLY RECOMMENDED TO OTHERS: I have recommended Binet’s HHHH over and over again–particularly to people who are heading to Prague.  

BONUS:  WHAT YOU ARE READING NOW:  FullSizeRender It’s so good, I’m not even underlining.  I don’t want to interrupt the flow or give myself a shortcut when I return to it as I know I will time and again.
