message 1: by Angel (new)

Angel Wow, this is a nice little list. Certainly gives me some ideas of books to read later. It even reminded me of titles I had wanted to read, but forgot for one reason or another.


message 2: by Lana (new)

Lana I love this list!


message 3: by Mikey (new)

Mikey Fernández Love the list. Thank you for taking the time to make it: Now I'll be browsing it and goin on amazon.

Thanks again!
M.


message 4: by Julie (new)

Julie #149 is a novel; doesn't belong on this list


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Which #149? There are several.


message 6: by Julie (new)

Julie Sweet Potato Queen's Novel


message 8: by Bettie☯ (last edited Dec 14, 2011 01:12AM) (new)

Bettie☯

Driving Over Lemons, although it does, luckily, have some described eating in it or they wouldn't have been able to sustain the arduous, and gently amusing, family move from England to Spain, doesn't really fit this category.


message 9: by Andy (new)

Andy I'm surprised how many of these books I've read or are on my to-read list. Apparently I'm a foodie.


message 10: by Lorna (new)

Lorna Thank you for the list. I'm amazed at how many I have already read!


message 11: by Emily (new)

Emily This list is fabulous, I've read quite a few of them but there are so many left to read on this list - can't wait to get started!


message 12: by Debbie (new)

Debbie Why are the following on this list? Should they be deleted?
#76 - A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (I have not read this so I could be missing something here...)
#107 - The New Best Recipe (cookbook)
#147 - The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2006
#153 - The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007
#168 - The Control of Nature
#199 - How to Cook Everything (cookbook)
#209 - You Shall Know Us by Our Velocity (novel)
#245 - Practical Bengali Grammar (grammar book!?!)
#247 - Zen Yoga (yoga)
#258 - Down and Out in London
#264 - The Sweet Potato Queens' First Big-Ass Novel
#276 - The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook
#283 - Bengali: A Comprehensive Grammar (grammar again)
#284 - Breathe Smart: The Secret to Happiness (????)
#290 - The Rusty Parrot Cookbook
#299 - The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook
#303 - Outlaw Woman: A Memoir of the War Years (activist memoir?)
#309 - Bengali Grammar (again!)
#341 - Unknown book (anyone know what it was?)
#342 - My Side of the Mountain (novel)
#356 - Rose En Marche (novel)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Jessica - you want me to remove anything?


message 14: by Debbie (new)

Debbie I went through and deleted the most obvious miscategorized ones - the cookbooks, novels, grammar books, and yoga books. I left in A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius.


message 15: by Judith (new)

Judith Newton Tasting Home Coming of Age in the Kitchen by Judith Newton


May I add my new food memoir to the list?


message 16: by Booklovinglady (last edited Apr 01, 2013 08:49PM) (new)

Booklovinglady I originally voted on How To Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food by Nigella Lawson but then reconsidered and removed my vote, as this Listopia is about "Non-cookbook non-fiction books" amd Nigella's book may be non-fiction but it definitely is a cookbook (and I use is as such...)

Hoe te eten Het plezier van koken en good food by Nigella Lawson


message 17: by Ben (new)

Ben Great list! Now if I can only find a way to "favourite" this list so that I can easily return to it next time I log in.


message 18: by Fjóla (new)

Fjóla It's a shame that somebody went through the trouble of having 52 of her 'author review circle' friends vote her book onto the wrong list, but My Greek Traditional Cook Book 1, being a cook book, does not belong on this list. I volunteer to remove it.


message 19: by Damona (new)

Damona Starting on page 6, #496, there are about a dozen books that are either cookbooks (stated in the title) or have nothing whatsoever to do with food (something about how to use Amazon??)


message 20: by Emily (new)

Emily N. Amazing list, just what I was looking for. Thank you!!


message 21: by Wouter (new)

Wouter Great list, thanks for sharing!
