Books and Mags

Happy Monday, readers! How was the weekend? I spent a good part of it laying on the couch, leafing through the New York Times, cookbooks and magazines. Between a few gifts and recent purchases, I found myself with an exciting stack of books and magazines on my nightstand. Here are some of my current favorites. What are you reading? Anything new and great?

The Gentlewoman. Always inspiring.
Jeana Sohn blogged about this issue of AnOther Magazine last month and I finally picked up a copy. How insane is that cover? It’s a keeper! IMG_7300
The Mozza Cookbook. I couldn’t help myself. Very illuminating as to how Nancy Silverton gets those pizzas so damn good (hint: heavy whipping cream!) IMG_7298
The writer Anne Zimmerman sent me The Food of Morocco as a thank you gift for inviting her to participate in Eating Our Words at the beginning of the month. Can’t wait to put my tagine to use. Thank you, Anne! IMG_7322
My mom lent me a copy of This Beautiful Life for my trip to Baja and told me that I wouldn’t be able to put it down. As she predicted, I read this gripping story about a Manhattan-based family coping with a technology induced crisis in one afternoon. If you want a little teaser, check out this review on Fresh Air.

And lastly, my old pal Brian Phillips edited the new book Rodarte, Catherine Opie, Alec South and sent me a copy last week. Everything here is truly gorgeous. Thank you, BP! IMG_7281 IMG_7269 IMG_7287
