Booking Through Thursday: Recent Informative

Here’s this week’s question:

What’s the most informative book you’ve read recently?

I have two thoughts about this one:First — the book I’ve just started reading is probably my first pick: A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts by Andrew Chaikin. I am loving this book! It’s full of detail and the human story behind the various missions.Second — a cookbook! How to Cook without a Book: Recipes and Techniques Every Cook Should Know by Heart by Pam Anderson. I learned about this book from The Pioneer Woman, whose blog is sheer perfection. I confess I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet, but I’ve bookmarked the heck out of the book. Anderson introduces an interesting concept: start with some simple base recipes, and then improvise in some (also simple) ways. Just like our grandmothers used to do… Now we learn it from a book. : )
