    That’s some list, Mr.Liebert, thanks for sharing it! I’m a slow reader and this inspires me to consider a speed-reading course. My current pace is, “The Forest Feast Gatherings,” Simple Vegetarian Menus for Hosting Friends & Family by Erin Gleeson. After watching the science-based documentary, “Forks Over Knives” I became a vegetarian about eight months ago. This was after working at going meatless for decades. As for Erin Gleeson’s book, it has me convinced I can turn preparing vegetables into an art. It’s full of the author’s colorful, vibrant photographs and artsy, yet simple (or so I hope) recipes. All this book chat reminds me of the Betty Smith quote, “From that time on, the world was hers for the reading. She would never be lonely again, never miss the lack of intimate friends. Books became her friends and there was one for every mood.” (from “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”). Happy reading, Ottmar. . . .
