CRRL My Librarian: Time-Traveling With Your Taste Buds
Do you ever wonder what foods your ancestors enjoyed? What sustained armies in the field? What fueled the ingenuity of Leonardo da Vinci or Shakespeare? Use these titles to not only learn about our culinary past, but actually live it by preparing authentic recipes.
I’m interested in a wide variety of subjects and my reading habits reflect that. When it comes to non-fiction, I tend to read a lot of history books. Some of my favorite subjects are military history, colonial history, and historical mysteries/oddities. I’m a bit of a DIYer so, from time to time, I will read books on carpentry, cooking, sewing, painting/drawing or any other craft that might peak my interest. I also really enjoy the outdoors, so books on plant and animal identification are always interesting to me.
As for fiction, I tend to like books that move along at a steady to fast pace; anything with a bit of swashbuckling or daring deeds usually peaks my interest. I also read mysteries and horror on occasion.
