(WWW Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Click on the image to join the fun!)
To play along just answer the following three questions:
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Last night I put the finishing touches on my review of I Am Hutterite, a memoir of a woman who spent the first 10 years of her life in the close-knit religious community, and the next several decades trying to blend in with the “English.” That review will be up on Thursday.
I’m a few pages into As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto: Food, Friendship, and the Making of a Masterpiece. The letters span a 20-year correspondence that began when Child wrote a fan letter to DeVoto’s husband regarding his article that lamented the lack of good knives in American kitchens. So far, so good.
Coming up next
As Non-fiction November continues, I think I’ll be grabbing Cinderella Ate My Daughter. It’s been sitting on my shelf since June, and it’s high time I dove in.
What are you reading this week?

I’ve heard really good things about Cinderella Ate My Daughter – I’ll be interested in seeing what your thoughts are on this one!
It was one of those books that blew up the blogosphere right after it came out. I’m sure I’ll have lots of thoughts about it; it’ll just be a matter of organizing them into something that makes sense instead of, “Rawr I hate society and culture and rawr rawr rawr!” :p
I Am Hutterite sounds interesting. I’ll have to come back and check out your review!
It was a good book. The review’s up now, if you want to check it out. 🙂
Oh, I love Julia Child! Is it any good? I often find non-fiction books dry and very school text like.
It’s pretty good so far, Patricia. When they start talking about specific recipes I kind of skim through, but it’s nice seeing the story of Childs’ cookbook through their eyes. I’m only a little ways in, but it’s worth it so far.
