Here at Mailbox Monday, we want to encourage participants to not only share the books they received, but to check out the books others have received.
Every Wednesday Leslie, Serena and I will each share 2 books that caught our eye from that week’s Mailbox Monday.
We encourage you to share the books that caught your eye in the comments.
A hilarious and horrific dissection of the restaurant industry from the waiter’s point of view, Prick with a Fork is a statement rather than an instruction! This gorgeously written treat combines the gritty take-no-prisoners attack of Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential with the gross confessions and forensic grunge of John Birmingham’s He Died With a Felafel in His Hand.Dining out will never be the same again! Therapy for former waiters, revelation to diners, pure reading pleasure for anyone interested in what really happens out the back of the restaurant.
I love cooking shows and travel shows, but I also love behind the scenes looks at industry, and this one combines them all.
In Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers, Allen deftly weaves personal stories with fifteen thematized, annotated, and illustrated reading lists for what to read next. By sharing some of the treasures in her library and the secret lives they reveal, she gives us permission to embrace the shameless book lover inside each of us. Unlocking Worlds is a testament to how reading passionately—and compassionately—can unlock the world beyond our back yard. Celebrating books and those who read them, Allen shows how the solitary act of reading can be a powerful thread that creates community and connection. Thought-provoking and eloquent, Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers is a must-have for anyone who can’t leave the house without a book in hand.
If you read books, how could you not want to read this?
