    After Molly Wizenberg's father died, she traveled to Paris and - amidst its culinary delights - realized her heart was in the kitchen. So she began Orangette, a highly popular cooking and life blog that eventually led her to the love of her life.

    Really enjoyed this one. I am by no means a "foodie" but really love these "food memoirs." Funny and touching...Great narrator too.

  • No Impact Man: The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet

    A guilty liberal finally snaps, swears off plastic, goes organic, becomes a bicycle nut, turns off his power, and generally becomes a tree-hugging lunatic who tries to save the polar bears and the rest of the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his baby daughter and Prada-wearing, Four Seasons-loving wife along for the ride. And that's just the beginning.

    Mark T says: "Silly Title- Worthwhile Story"
    "Thought provoking!"
    Overall

    If you want a book that will make you think (and then rethink the things you were thinking...), this is a great choice. I loved how the focus was not only on environmental impact, but also about simplifying our lives and remembering what life is really all about (ie the people we love). The author's reading voice is a bit distracting (almost 'valley girlish'!) at times, but as someone else said, a pretty good reading for a first-timer.
    Overall very funny, informative, and engaging!

  • Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Novella Carpenter

    Story

    Novella Carpenter loves cities - the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways.

    Sarah says: "Not an instruction book but a fun read"
    "Love, love, love!"
    Overall

    This was a fantastic book. Both funny and just downright interesting. Of course, I'm a wanna-be farmer...so maybe I'm a little biased. The reader was wonderful as well.
