I'm already starting to stage a plan for gathering some terrific audiobooks for our vacation. Once again, we're returning to Minerva Lake in the Adirondacks for two weeks in September. There we'll retire to our chalet nestled high above the lake. The audiobooks are for the long evenings by the fire (it can be downright chilly there by September). Audiobooks I'm attempting to get from local libraries: The Kite Runner, Saturday by Ian McEwan, Entombed (Ken loves thrillers) by Linda Fairstein, and Lost in the Forest by Sue Miller. We need a couple more, so I'm still working on the list. During the day, in between paddling, eating, writing, and excursions, I'm hoping to read A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby, The Practice of Deceit by Elizabeth Benedict, and I'd love a cooking memoir, if I can manage to find such a thing. Know any good ones?

Perhaps one of Ruth Reichl's?

What about Julie & Julia by Julie Powell? I haven't read it yet but it sounds intriguing. This is the subtitle: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen: How One Girl Risked Her Marriage, Her Job, & Her Sanity to Master the Art of Living. Apparently the book is based on Julie's blog about cooking every recipe from Julia Child's book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
