a boatload of cookbooks

Books completed this week: 
  • none
Books I'm currently reading:
  • if on a winter's night a traveller by Italo Calvino (moved this to my work-break-book)
  • Difficult Conversations by Douglas Stone, Bruce Patten, and Sheila Heen
  • Ranma 1/2 Vols 5-6 by Rumiko Takahashi
  • Soul Music by Terry Pratchett (my January Pratchett - good so far)
Books that made it into the house this week:
  • a boatload of cookbooks
Picture books we like and must read multiple times this week:
  • I am Josephine (and I am a Living Thing) by Jan Thornhill, illus. Jacqui Lee
  • One Some Many by Marthe Jocelyn, illus. Tom Slaughter (we've had this for ages, but smallfry has recently realized she can read it by herself and so has been reading it to us; remains one of my favourites)
