~An Interesting Read~

As I read through blogs, I occasionally come across a book that looks interesting. I then look on my library catalog and see if it is available. If it is, I place a hold on it. Often, by the time I get the book, I've forgotten who recommended the book.

Such is the case of White House Chef: Eleven Years, Two Presidents, One Kitchen. Regardless of who recommended it, it was a very interesting read. It allowed a peek into the White House, through the eyes of the chef. Walter Scheib was the chef for 7 years of the Clinton administration, and 4 years of the Bush administration. It is not a book on politics though - far from it. The book is peppered with recipes as well as short commentaries on different occasions and events. I really enjoyed reading this book!

I read that book last year and really enjoyed it... maybe you heard about it from me. :) I often get in line for books on paperbackswap after reading a review on a blog, but by the time my turn at the book comes up, I can't remember who first suggested it to me. :)

It was a fun book, wasn't it? A peek into another world. :)

LizzyKristine, now that I think about it, I probably did see it on your blog! Yes, the book was quite fascinating! Thanks for the recommendation!

That sounds like something I'd enjoy - I think I'll go look it up at my library! ;) I do the same thing: reserve a book and then forget where I heard about it. Thanks for the recommendation!
