I have eclectic tastes in books

I read a lot, in a range of things, and my current Goodreads recommendations, based on my Read shelf, includes:

The Lightning Thief, Rick Riordan

The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home, Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise,

The Stand, Stephen King (actually one of my favourite books), spinoff book, Captain Trips.

John Holt's How Children Learn


A World on Fire: Britian's Role in the American Civil War, Amanda Foreman.

It made me laugh a bit. 

My latest weaknesses have been in zombie literature, and crappy vampire books.  No, really.

I have new kitchen friends

Thanks to my Grandma, and some money she was lovely enough to leave me, I have some new kitchen friends!

Meet Davros, my Thermomix!  And the as-yet-unnamed coffee machine of awesomeness!

See, they like each other...

My A-Y-U-C-O-A grinds beans and has twin thermoblocks.  I don't even know why, but am guessing it's awesome!

I *heart* you both, kitchen friends!
