Yesterday, I finished reading another book.
I read it out of my usual order. A conversation had developed before Friday night services a few weeks back in which one of the fellowship mentioned that a new deli had opened in Riverside. He wasn't entirely happy with the food, but its proximity to his place of work made it very convenient. We then chatted about various delis in Southern California, and acknowledged that there were no delis in easy striking distance of where we stood at the time. During that conversation, one of the folks chatting mentioned having read Save the Deli: In Search of Perfect Pastrami, Crusty Rye, and the Heart of Jewish Delicatessen by David Sax. I had purchased a copy, spur of the moment, a while ago, but hadn't gotten to it yet.
Well, having been stimulated by the conversation, I pulled it down and started reading, subsequently finishing it.
Two of the chapters were very emotional for me.
I can say that the book is very well-written, and well-researched.
I found more meaning in this book than I'd expected.
oooh I want to read that!
Hit up your local library!

I have to find a copy of this.
I encourage you to do so!
I just have to wait for the library to open back up. *sob* They had a fire, and are moving and will be closed for 3 weeks. At least they allowed members to check out up to 40 books and said they won't charge late fees.
May I just say that hauling 10 hardcover books (I behaved) through 3 bus transfers is NOT PLEASANT?
