|Kim B's Comments|
|Mrs. Wilkes’ Boardinghouse cookbook : recipes and recollections from her Savanna|
by Wilkes, Sema.
After eating lunch at Mrs. Wilkes’ Boardinghouse in Savannah you will want some of these recipes (we waited an hour in line which is about average; President Obama ate there a few years ago but they whisked him right in, of course). Not the healthiest food in the world but it’s definitely some of the best comfort food around. Wish I was in that line right now. posted Jun 5, 2013 at 11:23AM
|A walk in the woods : rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail |
by Bryson, Bill.
What a great read! Not only hilarious in parts, it’s informative and unexpected, well-written, and reminded me sometimes of Wild by Cheryl Strayed. posted May 15, 2013 at 9:07AM
|American splendor [videorecording] |
by Pulcini, Robert.
A clever and original movie ... I forgot how good Hope Davis is in this. posted May 5, 2013 at 1:55PM
by Palacio, R. J.
A heart-warming, tender, sometimes heart-breaking, sometimes funny story about Auggie, a 5th grader with many facial deformities. I loved Auggie and his family (and Summer). posted May 2, 2013 at 6:23PM
|The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection [sound recording] |
by McCall Smith, Alexander
It’s such a treat when the new No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency book comes out. I always wait for the CD because the reader Lisette Lecat is so perfect! This title is #13 in the series and one of the best. Precious Ramotswe and her associate Grace Radiphuti have a surprise visitor one day - their idol Clovis Andersen, author of their beloved textbook Principles of Private Detection. Why is Clovis Andersen in Botswana, and will he help them solve two mysteries? posted Apr 16, 2013 at 7:40PM
