The Art Of Eating In : How I Learned To Stop Spending and Love The Stove
by Cathy Erway

The author should just stick to writing blogs, which she does, anyway with:, where she writes about home-cooked food.
The information that is presented, in this book, is only mildly interesting.
Cathy Erway decides to do an experiment and not eat out in New York for two years. She loves to cook, anyway, and figures that it will be fun. Too bad the book wasn't fun. With three chapters to go and 42 more pages to read, I could no longer stomach it.
While recipes are included, at the end of each chapter, I wasn't interested in trying any of them.
There are many more better written books on food.

Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived In That House
by Meghan Daum

I would change to title to: "Life Would Be Perfect If I Had Never Checked This Book Out Of The Library."
I read the prologue and the first chapter and closed it up. The author is obsessed with looking for her dream place to live and is addicted to real estate.
Not very interesting and right from the beginning, I found the writing tedious and shallow.
Don't bother with this one.
