Friday Linkups: The Sharper Your Knife the Less You Cry














It's Friday linkup time!  I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.

This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Do you read everyday?  If so do you have a "page goal"?

My Answer: 
Yes, I read every day even if I'm really exhausted I read a page or two before going to sleep.  I don't really have a page goal for ebooks but I always try to shoot for at least 50 pages with print books.

This week's book is The Sharper Your Knife the Less You Cry by Kathleen Flinn.  I heard such fantastic things about her 2nd book - The Kitchen Counter Cooking School - that I bought it new several years ago but then somehow never read it.  Then last year I read her 3rd book - Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good - and loved it and somehow in all that I go her first book which is this one.

My Beginning:
As a little girl, while other children played house, I played restaurant.

My Thoughts:
I love that food is such a presence in her life even from a young age.  I can't even imagine knowing what I wanted to do that early on.

The 56:
It's 8:00 a.m. and we're wandering through the Saxe-Breteuil market in the Seventh arrondissement, one of the city's largest outdoor markets.  The Eiffel Tower looms at the end of the stalls, presiding over the the market like a guardian.

My Thoughts:
I love how she sets the scene.  I can just picture it all!

So what do you think?  Keep reading?

  1. Interesting book titles. I'm not sure I'd keep reading but I don't read memoirs often. I try to read every day but I don't have a page count. I read until I fall asleep on the couch or until I force myself to go to bed.

    Happy Friday!

  14. Sounded like a mystery at first and then I noticed it was a foodie book. Bummer....lol. :) I am sure you will enjoy this but not something I would read. :)

  15. I usually try to read every day as well. It helps keep me on schedule with my books and helps to relax me. Hope you have a great week!

  16. I read everyday too but I never even thought of having a page count goal. It doesn't really bother me how much or how little progress I make with my book, it's just my time out.

  17. I read every day whenever I'm sitting down and not otherwise occupied! I am not convinced on this book, but just because I have so many backed up that I want to read. It would probably sit for a long while.

  18. I've heard of her other books, but this is a new one to me. Very descriptive and awesome title!

  19. I try to read every day too, although I am not always successful. :-( It's rare though that I don't. I loved the opening line of the book you shared. I just finished a book where one of the characters used to play Catholic Mass instead of house. :-)
