Read in Love
Sunday, September 16, 2001
I’ve been visiting the Public Library since they moved to just down my street (actually over on Pike at the convention center). I nabbed a handful of Asian cookbooks and have been reading up on the various Indian cuisines. I’ve even bought some whole spices, but I have yet to attempt to recreate any recipes. Cleaning the kitchen is daunting.
Also, my work on a friend’s web site has lead him to send me a copy of the Victorian “Socratic” novel “Teleny”. I’ve jumped in with two feet and think it is fascinating. It has a long and checkered history.
Also picked up my 1920s copy of Black Beauty I purchased on Ebay a while ago. I remember extensive lines from a Disney storytelling record I had as a child. Very impressive since the version I remember was an extreme condensation.
