Read-a-Thon: Hour 4

I have been dutifully reading since 5am (!!!!) I have finished Agatha Christie's Spider's Web, which started as a play, adapted to novel form. It's a bit different than other Christies I have read, but still an exciting and good read. I also managed to finish a book I was half through, Fannie's Last Supper, written by a food writer who sought to recreate a 12-course Victorian meal using contemporary cooking methods. Crazy, and the calf's head soup discussion nearly made me lose my lunch, but very interesting, too.

So, that's:

Books finished: 2
Pages: (243+136) - too stupid and tired to do the math right now.

Wow - you read a lot faster than I do! I'm not sure when or if I'll get to Agatha - I'm pretty into my current book. Your other read sounds interesting - calf head's soup - hmm...

I love cooking, I should check out that Fanny Farmer book.

I'm cheering for you!
