What are you reading?

You know, books and stuff.

Been on a non-fiction food/bev kick lately. Just finished The Drunken Botanist by Amy Stewart (attn:Bot, you'll like this) and Medium Raw, Anthony Bourdain's latest screed. Tons O'Fun, especially if you've ever worked Back of House.
Working on Michael Pollan's Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.

It's too hot to have to think very hard.

Question HUH?

New g/f has given me a book called "the pocket edition - Kama Sutra".

Inside was a leather bookmarker with a fringe @ the bottom, inscribed in gold on it was a list of the 10 Commandments !!!

ive been devouring all the "game of thrones" books. Pretty enjoyable for fantasy style which im not usually into.

I do have to say this for George RR Martin, he does keep you on the edge of your seat murdering principle characters. No one is sacred
