Title: How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman
Category: Nonfiction, Cookbooks
Review: Mark Bittman has written some of the best and informative cookbooks to date. He does not shy away from any information in this book. Although this book is made for Vegetarians, he also gives information for cooking Vegan as well. I am not a Vegetarian, but what caused me to buy it was the fact that Vegetarian can be healthier way to eat. He has explored so many things and given tips on recipes that you will love to try. For instance, in the bread chapter, he gives you recipes for making your very own pizza, bread, tortillas, and more. In the soup chapter, he teaches you how to make simple stocks along with soups. This book is not difficult. Mark Bittman does not make books for the everyday person. That is what I like about him and his books. Try it. I think you will like it. This is another great book he has written.
Well I thought I would wish everyone, Wiccan and non-Wiccan alike, a Merry Beltane or May Day! I hope this day goes great for you! Summer is coming and this day marks the beginning of Spring fully beginning. Summer will truly begin soon. So I hope you enjoy this day!
Last month wasn’t that good. I’m hoping this month will be better. So here are my goals of the month and here are hoping I will pull through. Pray for me. 🙂
- History: 2
- Cooking: 1, start on another
- Fiction: 1
- New Age: 1
So that’s all I can think of for now. Hopefully, I will make it through. 🙂 Have a good one!
Well it’s official. Today I have written my 150th book review. I never thought I would make it this far and have the blog for this long. I’m hoping to make it to 200 soon. Thanks for sticking around with me. 🙂
Title: Hitler’s Henchmen by Guido Knopp
Category: Nonfiction, History, World War II, Hitler
Review: I loved this book, though it took me forever to get through it due to health issues. This book is basically an in depth look at six of Hitler’s most import deputies (or henchmen). Who are the six? Well I’m sure you are all going to know the most famous: Goebbels, Goring, Himmler, Hess, Speer, and Donitz. I think the last three though don’t get as much talk as the first though. This book definitely does a good job and there is an unequal section on any of them. Meaning that the author has paid very good attention to giving information to each man and relaying a fair amount in each section. I found this book to be very informative, like I have been saying, and have found things that I did not know before. I would recommend this for anyone who loves history and particularly World War II. If you don’t want to buy it, seek it out in your library. I was impressed.
Title: Auschwitz, A New History by Laurence Rees
Category: Nonfiction, History, War World II
Review: This was a very well written book. When we think about Auschwitz, we think about the gas chambers, the many of Jews and political prisoners who were executed, and the concentration camp. The author gives us a complete and updated history on Auschwitz. There are six chapters that start from the conception of Auschwitz to it’s closing. The chapters cover the years 1938-1945. The author included a lot of stories from not only Jewish prisoners, but political prisoners. What made me enjoy this book was the fact that it was well researched. The Holocaust is denied often and this book is just another validation that there were concentration camps and that Auschwitz was real. If you are a particularly interested in concentration camps and the history of Auschwitz, then this is the book for you. It is a complete history. You will find this book a wonderful addition to your library. I know I do.
Well February hasn’t exactly been a great month for me. I only read three books. I didn’t exactly meet my goal. So here are my goals for this month.
- 2 history books
- 1 cookbook
- 1 fiction
Let’s hope this month will be better!
