We had 3 breakaway winners for our summer book poll...so let's read all three of them! We will dedicate a month to each title, which will almost take us into fall. Have a wonderful summer everybody!

It isn't showing up in our catalog yet, but the street date isn't until 9/4/13. I'll keep an eye on it and try to post here when it's available to place reserves in our catalog.

Kentucky Bourbon Country is now showing up in the Library's catalog and taking reserves. Since the street date is 9/4/13, I've pushed back the start date for the group read.

Here's the link if you would like to place a hold:

It looks like Amazon has updated the listed release date to 9/22/13, so I will push back the start date on our group read again. I promise that we'll start filling holds as soon as possible. Hopefully, it will be worth the wait!

Julie Brock | 1 comments This book is beautifully done - in terms of the writing, photography and publishing (thank you, University Press of Kentucky). I'm returning my copy today and I hope it will continue to circulate a lot!

I agree! The pics are awesome. I'm on page 30. Can't wait to finish it. :D It was worth waiting for!! :D:D.

Kit Finished-its awesome. I enjoyed learning about the red layer-angel's share and other strange things! It was an interesting history lesson in the founding of Bourbon in KY. :D And the photographs are beautiful. I'm now in the mood to make bourbon balls for Christmas!

Kit Do we have a plan for next year for our Lexington reads?


message 22: by Bobby (new)

Bobby | 72 comments Mod
We'll be reading the 2014 One Book One Bluegrass title in the late winter/early spring. Otherwise, next year is a clean slate. I'm open to recommendations if anyone has any!

Awesome! Thanks for sharing!


Harley (harley12) | 28 comments An enjoyable journey through the history of the bourbon industry in Kentucky.
Having grown up in Jefferson County and attending High School in "Lively Shively" where the smell of bourbon aging was never far away,this book served as a trip down memory lane for me.
I will also be using it for furture reference as I visit some of the Urban Bourbon Trail establishments to participate in some personal quality control activities.

I thought the photos were incredible! I still haven't made my bourbon balls! But, maybe, when we meet for the annual book swap.....!

Kit Speaking of bourbon balls: news report last night said that bourbon balls are going to be in the "swag bags" at the Oscars this year. Below is a seg. of part of the article:

Marker’s Mark, Blanton’s, Michter’s and Moonshine, with a cinnamon and cayenne kick, are the four flavors the Ramseys have chosen to include. Katarzyna Kociomyk, owner of FAF Gallery on Third Street, created the artwork for the top of the candy box.

(from a recent on-line Courier Journal article.) Yeah KY.

Mari (mariadkins) | 53 comments Moonshine bourbon balls? I almost fell over laughing.


Harley (harley12) | 28 comments I know for sure who I'm gonna be sitting next to at the book swap... Oh Yah !!

Lol. Who? Did I mention there's a moonshine bourbon marinade? Good for barbeques! Have you tried it?
