Slightly Peckish Tuesday

9 November, 2010

It’s Slightly Peckish Tuesday again and I’ll be writing a little more literature-focused food posts from now on at Umamimart. It’s a new direction for me so we’ll see how that goes^^ And it’s making me read in a whole new way focusing more on the food that crops up in my reading. Not bad at all. So check it out!

On a bookish note, I’ve actually been quite good with my reading recently and finished more books than I thought I would. Currently I’m reading and enjoying Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde and Illustrado by Miguel Syjuco.

I’ll leave you today with a number of interesting links:

A great link here about cocktails for writers.

Another interview with James Franco here. Yeah, I’m slightly obsessed. Must get my hands on his new book.

A Paris Review interview of David Mitchell here (I know, I know, I really should get to his books, right?)

And finally, Simon aka Savidge Reads wants to know why we blog about books and why we read them.

  1. I think I’ll have to add David Mitchell to my list of Must Reads for 2011; I keep meaning to get to him and then I get distracted. On the other hand, I do like knowing that his books are “waiting” because I’m sure that I will enjoy them, and there’s something to be said for anticipation!

  2. I’m also a sucker for paying more attention than most people on the food in books, part of my dissatation actually looked at it too, so I will definitely be checking out your posts more often over at Umamimart.

    Haha…that cocktails for writers link is hilarious! I love it! I really want to read some Jasper Fforde. I keep hearing so many things about him! I’ll be looking for your review on it! 🙂
