Two nonfiction books came into my house last week. What books did you get last week?
Temperance Creek: A Memoir by Pamela Royes. My book club is reading this for our September meeting. It is my turn to host, so by tradition, dinner should be inspired by the book. I may be making some kind of cowboy camp cookout, by the looks of this!
Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste by Bianca Bosker. My "cheater" book club* is reading this for October and we are all bringing a bottle of wine to do a blind tasting, which we know will be a joke.
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.
Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach.
* I have my real book club. and I have my "cheater" book club that I read with on the side. Several of the ladies in my book club have similar arrangements and we try to be very discreet and sophisticated about it, but sometimes when the wine is flowing, the accusations start to fly!
