current book inventory

books that i am (reluctantly) returning to the library:
1. the other way to listen
children's book about what it means to really listen to the world. beautifully illustrated.
2. nancy silverton's sandwich book
recipes from LA's campanile restaurant & their weekly "sandwich night" tradition. major YUM!
3. living in style: without losing your mind
i wish i could live by this title.
4. a field guide to sprawl
fascinating visuals of sprrrrraaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwl. and some interesting new lingo like boomburb, mall glut, pork chop lot, and snout house.
5. letters to a young poet
simple, real medidations. i'm halfway through. must. finish. why don't we write letters like this anymore?

books recently added to my "to check out" list:
1. the country doctor
2. bird by bird: some instructions on writing and life
3. the cloudspotter's guide: the science, history, and culture of clouds


  1. Two things:
    1 - I love those books you've checked out!
    2 - So you'd recommend Dr. Bronner's?

  2. 1 - thanks!
    2 - yes, i'd definitely recommend my friend Dr. B.

  3. yum! The cover of the sandwich book is making me really crave one, and it's only 9:30am...

  4. i love letters to a young poet- it is such a gift of a book. i am so glad to hear that you are reading it and love it as much as i do whenever i read it. we must have tea and share our favorite passages...
