When bakers read...and also listen to music and suss on some great films
This is where you will find my favorite selections of tried and true baking books of colleagues and fellow published bakers. It is also where you can browse new cookbooks that I review, and neat selections in fiction, new age/spiritual (nothing dippy, soundly spiritual), fragrance, lifestyle, books on writers in the act of writing – in short, an eclectic grab bag of special and neat things to read that I think are enriching. We recommend www.amazon.comJessica’s Biscuit, ebooks.com, Barnes and Noble.com, and in Canada, Indigo Chapters online. Please support writers in print by ‘buying the book’. Please support your local booksellers too by going to your neighbourhood and private bookstores.
The book categories are below.

Before you discover our reviews, first things first - You need to know about: bookends!
The Collector's Encyclopedia of Bookends, Louise Kuritzky and charles de Costa, Collector Books, Schroeder Publishing Company, 2006
Are you are fascinated with bookends as I am? What hard-core book reader isn't? I just started collecting bookends and this book only whets my appetite for more. The authors have carefully researched and included photographs of major eras and types of bookends - from metal, wood, copper, to themes of animals, myth, Western, birds - you name it. Each is illustrated by plate and year, and in many cases, the prices such bookends fetch. (Ebay is perfect for hunting some down). This is a fascinating book and from a company that specializes in books on collectibles and does it exceptionally well.
