The Well-Seasoned Reader Challenge

Melissa the Book Nut is serving up the Well-Seasoned Reader Challenge.

Here's how it works:

Rule #1: The challenge runs from January 1 to March 31.

Rule #2:
You must read at least three books.

Rule #3: The books must:
have a food name in the title
be about cooking/eating
have a place name in the title
be about one (or more) person's travel experience
be about a specific culture
be by an author whose ethnicity is other than your own

Rule #4: They must be middle-grade on up, but can be either fiction or non-fiction.

Here's my list!

Food in title:
By Bread Alone by Sarah-Kate Lynch

About cooking:
Dishing With the Kitchen Virgin by Susan Reinhardt

Travel experiences:
Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion

Geography of Bliss is on my TBR list, too. I'll be curious to see what you say about that, if you do read it. :) Thanks for joining up!

Hmmm. Not sure what to read. Does it "count" if I wrote one of the books? :)

Also, just to point out: Since every chapter in my book begins with a martini recipe, it might be considered a "crossover" to the cooking ones.

I'm just sayin'...

Melissa - A friend in my book club read it this year and it sounded interesting. I'll read it eventually, even if it's not for the challenge. :)

Doreen - It sounds like it's even more perfect for the challenge, then! :)
