Now I'm reading My Kitchen Year by Ruth Reichl. I've always enjoyed her books - Comfort Me With Apples, Tender at the Bone, Delicious. I can't relate to this one entirely, because she is grieving her job at Gourmet (an alien concept to me - I've never had a job I've missed). But it's full of appealing recipes. I got the ingredients for her pumpkin pancakes. I like the Trader Joe's pumpkin pancake mix, but it disappeared off the shelves early this year. Her recipe looks like a good substitute (but rich, with a stick of butter and four eggs). She says you can make it with half a stick, but it won't taste as good.

I was having trouble getting to sleep, so I finished up The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg. I thought it might be too sentimental, based on the title, but it was lovely. I also read a string of good Alice Hoffman books lately: The Rules of Magic, The Marriage of Opposites, The Museum of Extraordinary Things, Faithful, The Dovekeepers.
