library loot


So it was my first time visiting the library in a long time. I was so happy to go! Just the pleasure of seeing and browsing among all those books. Wonderful!

 I wanted to get a book about fermenting foods and there were a few. This one, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fermenting Foods, seemed to be comprehensive and full of easy ideas. Also I've been taking a more structured approach to trying wine lately and I realised that just figuring out what the bottles on the shelf contain is quite tricky. So I got Understanding Wine Labels to help me out. Finally, the Kitchen Reader book this month is Below Stairs, the memoir of a 1920s kitchen maid.


This post is a part of a weekly blogging event called Library Loot. It is co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. I was introduced to it by our new Kitchen Reader member, Vicki from I'd Rather Be at the Beach.

Hi, Sarah. Nice to meet you on my Bonnie's Books blog. I see you are "a teacher, living in Singapore." I read enough of your blog to see you moved there with your husband. Where are you from originally?

Hi Bonnie, nice to meet you, too. I'm from Canada and I've been in Asia for four years now with my British husband, first Hong Kong, then here. After I visited Bonnie's Books, I realised you have a lot of blogs! Wow, how do you keep up with them all?

I should pick up that Fermenting Foods. Below the Stairs keeps catching my eye. Enjoy your loot!

I think I would like Below Stairs. I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey. Welcome to Library Loot!

Vicki, if you decide to review Below Stairs, I'll add it to The Kitchen Reader's round-up. We are pretty flexible about timing!
