Two Books and Audiobooks


The Elements of Pizza by Ken Forkish. One of the elements on page 111 is water. 1.5 cups worth of water.

Modern Potluck by Kristin Donnelly. Page 60 says "On using whole grain in salads." A few pages later there is a photo of a hand reaching down to a metal tub filled with ice and beer bottles. The beer bottles have a stylized B on the neck label so I figured, "Hey, I'm going to see what brewery that is." That was easy to do because I found a list of brewers and then checked to see where the author lived. She lives in Brooklyn, it's the Brooklyn Brewery.

Audiobooks on CD

The Silenced by Heather Graham. 8 CDs at 9.2 hours. Read by Phil Gigante, I think that guy does some good work.

Super Mind: how to boost performance and live a richer and happier life through transcendental meditation by Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D.  9 CDs at 11.5 hours. I suppose the subtitle tells the whole story, huh?

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah.  12 CDs at 14.8 hours. You know who likes Hannah's books? Lots of people. That's why she is popular.

Killer Year: stories to die for... edited by Lee Child.7 CDs at 8.5 hours.  Crime short stories by authors first published in 2007. Kind of an odd theme, but what the hey? Duane Swierczynski is in here. So is Ken Bruen. Ken Bruen? I that he had plenty of books before 2007. Let me check.. Yep, his fist book was in 1993.

Invincible by Diana Palmer. 8 CDs at 8 hours. Romance novel with a guy helping out a woman who saw a killer.

On Mystic Lake by Kristin Hannah. 9 CDs at 10.5 hours. More romance.
