I am a bibliophile of the highest order, and I am proud to say that Fort Worth, TX, boasts an amazing network of libraries, complete with tons of programs for kids and adults, artistic displays, music, and lots more. But, best of all, twice a year, the library sells off their backstock of withdrawn and unused donated books for cheap - crazy cheap - and I never miss it! But, wait, it gets even better. On the final day of the sale, they let you "fill a box" with books for only $15. They provide the box, of course, but the box is of a generous size. Today, for example, my husband and I crammed a box with no less than 56 books, about a third of them hardbacks. We handed them $15 in cash and whistled all the way home. That's a cost of about 26 cents per book. I mention this here because I found some great vegan and health stuff. I don't have a photo because the books have already been dispensed to various shelves throughout my home, but I will post the Amazon pictures for you. Check it out...
Apocalypse Chow - I found this wacky little gem buried under some Junior League cookbooks. It's all vegan, weirdly enough, and some of the recipes actually look pretty good! Some examples are the "Duck and Cover" Tortilla Bake, Rice Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce, Polenta Fusion Fiesta and Curry In a Hurry. Yum! Plus, I live in Tornado Alley, so we lose our electricity a lot more than I care for. I think I will do well to keep this one next to the flashlights.
Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System - Well, it just so happens that I have a jug of Bragg's apple cider vinegar sitting in my pantry as I type so, naturally, I couldn't resist this book! Maybe it will "banish my obesity." It might be difficult, seeing as how I use the vinegar to bake cupcakes, but we'll see what happens...
The Vegan Sourcebook - Joanne Stepaniak is a vegan pioneer and her recipes are fabulous. You can't go wrong with Jo-Step! I was happy to find this one. I can't wait to try the Sweet Tomato Vinaigrette recipe!
The UltraMind Solution: Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First - The Simple Way to Defeat Depression, Overcome Anxiety, and Sharpen Your Mind and Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss, which are also fairly recent acquisitions. I haven't read them yet, but I thought I'd be uber-Ultra and grab this book to pad my Hyman collection.
Okay, so that's it for the vegan and health books. I'm still kicking myself for not grabbing a Nava Atlas cookbook the second I saw it. When I went back for it, it was gone. Gah!
As I learn and cook from these new treasures, I will share my findings with you.
P.S. I also got a ton of other great books. If you're a bibliophile, like me, take a look and let me know what you think of some of my finds! I also really love recommendations too. I'll read anything from children's and teen fiction to classic ghost stories, memoirs and health books, but my favorite genre is dystopian sci-fi. If you have a book rec, lay it on me!
