whatcha reading these days? any good recommendations for us? sometimes i haven’t the luxury of time to read an entire novel (as much as I’d love to!), but i do like a good picture book, and cookbooks are my weakness. such pretty photographs to be inspired by. there’s been a few books on my ‘wanted’ list, and a few new favorite reads i’ve recently discovered, so i thought i’d share a few today. but, please — do tell what’s on your coffee table these days? i always enjoy a good book or magazine recommendation!

after spending the last couple of weeks in los angeles, this book looks pretty interesting — Los Angeles: Portrait of a City. A pictorial history of the City of Angels; it’s Rise and sprawl or how Los Angeles came to be.

i’ll bet this is a good read — based on the documentary about her, this is one eccentric and brilliant woman. i’m ordering a copy of diana vreeland memos, filled with her personal memos to friends and colleagues. juicy, i’ll bet.

how about taschen’s Cabins? i think i could really get into this book — the ultimate quiet escape to a cabin in the woods. i think there’s some extraordinary cabins featured here.

  1. So nice to meet you and Lucy this morning and a thrill after following you so long from afar.

    After we finish driving back East, a yoga retreat might be just the thing to get out the kinks! And after practically zero time alone (I love my husband, but we’ve been together 24/7 for weeks now) a cabin in the woods is also food for thought.

    And speaking of food, I just finished reading “Blue Plate Special” by Kate Christenson. If you haven’t read it, it’s a terrific memoir with a food theme.

  2. I’m currently buying so many of these “indie” magazines that it totally breaks my books budget. I have never bought the the Cherry Bombe, but will do as of your recommendation. :)

  3. I second Blue Plate Special by Kate Christensen and also absolutely loved The Boys in the Boat by David James Brown. Two of my favorite reads this summer!

  4. I love the cover of the Ceviche book! I had lots of ceviche when I was in Peru, so I’m going to check it out and try and make my own. I can’t remember much else about the food I ate there, though, but with all the restaurants and cook books being devoted to the Peruvian kitchen, I must have missed out on something major. A great reason to go back, I guess, as if the fact that it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world isn’t enough.
