Summer Reading

Boy, I was tired last night. I didn’t really end the post, just stopped writing. Blogging has been a bit light this summer, but I have read some great books. So with no further ado, I give you my summer 2008 reading recommendations.

You may only know actor Bruce Campbell as Sam in the current USA Network series Burn Notice, but he has worked steadily as an actor for 20+ years, starting with the Evil Dead movies and including an excellent but short-lived series in the early 90s called The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.

He’s also a very engaging author. This summer I’ve read his memoir If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor and am nearly done with his second book, Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way.

I’ve always enjoyed reading cookbooks, so I guess it is no surprise that I enjoy reading the memoirs of great chefs. I read Julia Child’s memoir My Life in France a few years ago and this summer, I read Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential and Marco Pierre White’s The Devil in the Kitchen. I highly recommend all three.

Finally, two new books by mom bloggers deserve a space on your shelf: Sleep Is for the Weak, an anthology of posts from mom blogs edited by Rita Arens, and The White Trash Mom Handbook, by Michelle Lamar.
