Literary Feasts: People of the Book, Geraldine Brooks
I love reading about food in books. I like to cook and I love to eat even more. So on Friday’s I’ll be sharing the culinary delights that I have come across in my reading. What better way to start off the weekend than thinking about good food in a good book.

After a few bites I started to feel a bit better.” 
Have you come across any good food in your reading this week?
