On My Wishlist: August 27, 2011: 08/27/11
School started for me and the children. I've been so busy with my library internship that I didn't get to finish any of the books I started last week. I'm nearly done with The Ghost and the Goth and I've just started Dreaming in Hindi by Katherine Russell Rich. I am also reading Attention All Shipping by Charlie Connelly, a book that was on my wishlist since it first was published.
My wishlist remains constant at 908 books.
Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):
The Featured Wish for August 27, 2010:
Pie by Sarah Weeks (recommended by the King County Library)
I heard about this book yesterday from a review posted on the King County Library blog. It has so many elements that have me excited. First is the author, Sarah Weeks. I've been reading her books for about a decade. She write for all different ages from picture books up through full length novels.
Second is the description: a book about a missing pie recipe where the secret is in the crust. This summer my daughter and I began a new family tradition, pie baking. We go to the farmers' market and pick out the ripest fruit for that week. While I slice up the fruit, she makes the crust. I only had to show her once and she was able to run with it and make it her own. Our favorite secret ingredient is cinnamon. Five shakes is all it takes to make a regular pastry crust into something special.
According to the KCL review each chapter has a recipe that the author has tried herself. I'm curious to try some of her included recipes, after reading the book, of course.
The book is due out in October.

Doesn't it! Maybe in the future we can compare reviews of Pie.

You have me intrigued! The cover is cute, with the cat and the pie falling.

First of all, thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting on my OMW post. I greatly appreciate it!
This books sounds pretty cute. While my thing is paranormal romance, fantasy, science fiction, and the like, I just might give this a try. The cover certainly is adorable!
