I feel like a book looter.

Some very generous barnes and noble gift cards have brought forth much goodness:

Salt – Mark Kurlansky
The Hour I First Believed – Wally Lamb
The Varieties of Religious Experience – William James
The Ayatollah Begs to Differ – Hooman Majd

…..and I still have $16 left with which I’ll probably pick up either the Top Chef cookbook or Merton’s Mystics and Zen Masters. You know you’re officially a nerd when the barnes and noble gift card becomes the default gift choice from your friends and family. But I’m not complaining.

  1. Thanks for sharing! We are going to Barnes & Noble sometime this weekend as we both got gift cards from our family as well. i am really interested in exploring more after reading about them at amazon:

    1. Merton’s ‘Mystics & Zen MAsters’
    2. Hooman Majd’s ‘The Ayatollah Begs to Differ’

  2. So glad that you found Salt, it’s been a favorite of mine for a long time. If you enjoy books about the history of food and it’s affect on culture, Kitchen Literacy by Ann Vileisis just rocked Jared’s world. Enjoy your reading!
