A DISers Book Club!
After listening to the "facebook to facebook" email show and reading a previous post about "kevin's book club" , I thought it might be fun to start a thread where people could post what books they have read or are currently reading. I have already added some titles to my reading list after reading some of the suggestions given on this board, so let's get started!
The last two books I read were written by Chef Anthony Bourdain. Some of you may know him from his Travel Channel show "No Reservations". Many of you, however, may not know that the reason he is on television today is because of the sucess of his first New York Time's Bestseller Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Cullinary Underbelly. In this book Bourdain shares his experiences in the restaurant industry in a rather unbaised way (think the dis unplugged but with food). His second book, A Cook's Tour, is equally as entertaining; however, it focuses on his travels around the world in search of the "perfect meal". I would suggest these titles to anyone that has a true apreciation for food, whether it be at some swanky four star joint in New York, or your local deli.
I am currently reading Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbooks Got Wrong by James W. Loewen. I started reading this a few hours ago and cannot put it down. The book evaluates twelve of the leading American history textbooks used in the country and shows that many of the things they teach are factually incorrect. This book is very well researched (the notes pages are almost as long as long as the book itself), and I would reccomend it to all you history buffs out there!
That's it for now...
I would love to hear what everyone else is reading.
I hope this catches on!
