The TBR List: September 13

This week's TBR List is brought to you by Jhumpa Lahiri (who I've recently discovered and become enamored with).

- The lovely folks at Refinery29 were nice enough to feature us in their post this week about 9 off-the-radar food blogs worth reading. Check it out!

- Books to read in the fall.

- Sweaters in dizzying food patterns that I kind of hate. Let me clarify: I hate the patterns and the sweaters they're on.

- Have you read any of the books that made the Man Booker Shortlist? (We'll be reviewing Jhumpa Lahiri's upcoming The Lowland in a few weeks.)

- Speaking of Ms. Lahiri, she had some interesting things to say about "immigrant literature" recently.

- This writer goes to author readings then illustrates them (with quotes!)

- I gushed about my electric kettle over at Viewpoints.

- Bookish is doing a big ol' giveaway.

- We can all agree that cooking is an essential life skill, right? So should home ec make its way back into high school curricula?

- A simple trick for staying on task — something writers are notoriously bad at.

- I had an allergic reaction to MSG last weekend and it reminded me of this video that I last watched in high school.
