Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Since last I posted, I've finished two comic books. The first was House of Mystery #9, new complications have arisen. The second was Shrapnel #1, an SF/military book, whose artwork is difficult to interpret, but the writing seems pretty interesting. Might be worth following.

There was another book from my Amazon Wish List that I managed to retrieve from the library, called On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen. It's encyclopedic. It's a textbook of culinary knowledge. It's a terrific reference book. It's too much to try to read on its own, but it'd be a great thing to pull down and review at leisure. It's going back to the library, unfinished, and back on the Wish List, because I think it'd be nice to have, but too time-consuming to try to read right now. Still, if you're interested in food, I think this might be a book worth having.
