Margot and Joyfully Retired is hosting the second Foodies Reading Challenge in 2012 and I am very excited to sign up.
This was one of my favorite challenges in 2011; I read six food books for it. My wrap-up post is here, with links to my reviews.
This year, I am signing up at the "Pastry Chef" level to read 4 - 8 food-related books. Click the button or link above to go to the main challenge page for details or to sign up.
