Hey there! Welcome to It’s Monday, What Are You Reading!
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Fair warning… this meme tends to add to your reading list!
Second day into February and I feel like I blinked and missed last week! I had big plans for kicking off my half marathon training starting February 1, but instead, I have hardly left the house this weekend other than the grocery store and church. On the bright side, just today I secured two of the four authors I am looking for to be a part of Wine and Words 2014 which feels good! 😀 I will announce them later this week, tomorrow evening I have our Annual Friends Of The Library board meeting and I need to announce to them first.
As far as what was posted… here is what I had:
As for this week, I think I am going to stay low. I have several books (yup..several) going that I have changes up, read a little of something else and now I need to finish them. Yes, they are good… I am just kind of all over the board this past week. However… I will be needing me some audio this week and for that I choose:
Masters of Doom is the amazing true story of the Lennon and McCartney of video games: John Carmack and John Romero. Together, they ruled big business. They transformed popular culture. And they provoked a national controversy. More than anything, they lived a unique and rollicking American Dream, escaping the broken homes of their youth to produce the most notoriously successful game franchises in history – Doom and Quake – until the games they made tore them apart. This is a story of friendship and betrayal, commerce and artistry – a powerful and compassionate account of what it’s like to be young, driven, and wildly creative.
My love for Wil Wheaton’s narration continues….
Recently, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain’s shocking, “Don’t Eat Before Reading This.” Bourdain spared no one’s appetite in this tell-all about what happens behind the kitchen door.
Now, the author uses the same “take-no-prisoners” attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike. From his first oyster in the Gironde, to his lowly position as a dishwasher in a honky-tonk fish restaurant in Provincetown, from the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, to drug dealers in the East Village, from Tokyo to Paris and back to New York again, Bourdain’s tales of the kitchen are as passionate as they are unpredictable.
Kitchen Confidential will make your mouth water while your belly aches with laughter. You’ll beg the chef for more, please.
I have listened to him before and he is quick wit, dry, and funny…
That’s it audio goals and a book clean up so hopefully by this time next week I can start fresh 😀 What are you reading this week? What did you read last week? Book lovers want to know! Please add your link to your It’s Monday What Are You Reading where it says click here.
