What have I been reading?

I'm often asked what books I am currently reading. I tend to read about one food writing book a week along with a number of magazines, papers, texts and culinary books, depending on what i am working on and what my mind have gravitated towards.

For the inquisitive mind though, this past week I picked up ten books from Barnes and Nobles (Buy four get one free promotion), purchased a couple items on and also picked up a couple from the Open Door Bookstore on Jay Street in Schenectady.

What do you think of Home Sausage Making? I thumbed through it once but picked Charcuterie by Michael Ruhlman instead.

I'm also curious about your thoughts on the Sweet Life in Paris. I've been meaning to pick that one up. I've been following David Lebovitz's blog. He has some very well written food stories and recipes.
