YUMMERTIME BOOK CLUB

BOOKCLUB4

We’re starting a book club… for the two of us and hopefully you!

Okay, so yeah, we’re not Oprah. But, you should always remember, reading is fundamental. At least, that’s what we were taught in elementary school, right? When asked what we love to do, reading always falls on our list. We just… never make the time for it, haha. What with Netflix, Bravo and HGTV, our nights are packed — we’ll admit, we love those real housewives.

So maybe it’s not an “official” book club. But, we’re making a goal for ourselves to read at least one book each per month! We’ll take the time every month to review the books we read the previous month, all while offering a new selection of books we’re just about to read.

To begin, we’re reading The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating, by Carole Radziwill (chosen by Chris), and Summer House with Swimming Pool, by Herman Koch (chosen by Brock).

Have any recommendations for books we should read? Send us your suggestions in the comments below or through an email to info@yummertime.com!

    “Platero and I” by Juan Ramon Jimenez
    It is a lovely meditative book of prose poems about a poet and his donkey.
    A wonderful book to enjoy a few chapters each morning or evening.
    Might sound a little odd…but it is very lovely… here is an excerpt from the first chapter…

    “Platero is a small donkey, a soft, hairy donkey: so soft to the touch that he might be said to be made of cotton, with no bones. Only the jet mirrors of his eyes are hard like two black crystal scarabs. I turn him loose, and he goes to the meadow, and, with his nose, he gently caresses the little flowers of rose and blue and gold. . . . I call him softly, “Platero?” and he comes to me at a gay little trot that is like laughter of a vague, idyllic, tinkling sound. He eats whatever I give him. He likes mandarin oranges, amber-hued muscatel grapes, purple figs tipped with crystalline drops of honey. He is as loving and tender as a child, but strong and sturdy as a rock…”

  • One of my favourite books is Ghost Hunters – The Haunting Of Borley Rectory by Neil Spring. I didn’t like scarier beooks before but this was amazing! A definite must read!
