Pretty small haul this week. I’ve been trying to be very good and not buy too many books or borrow too many either. I did go to the library this week but managed to come out with only 2 books. I also got a couple of Christmas themed books which is new for me. It’s all part of the seasonal spirit, right? Bought Christmas Eve at Friday… Read more »

Non-Fiction Review: The Treats Truck Baking Book

The Treats Truck Baking Book by Kim Ima Publication date: 1 Nov 2011 by HarperCollinsISBN 10/13: 0062065777 | 9780062065773 Let’s be honest–baking books, by and large, are all kind of the same.

I am no longer around other people’s books every day, and I don’t bake or cook very often, but I can’t resist… Read more »
