The TBR List: Jan. 8

The TBR List: Jan. 8

Great news, everyone: I'm out of my reading rut! I guess it has something to do with the new year and having a fresh start. I just finished California by Edan Lepucki and will have a pairing post for you very soon. I'm excited to get back into the pairing game after a month of gift guides :)

I'm looking forward to a great year, full of interesting books and plenty of lipstick-marked coffee mugs. Here are some of the interesting things I read lately:

- This is what happens when sketch artists draw book characters.

- A short-ish history of the croissant. Dare you not to salivate.

- Fascinating. Did you know that food confiscated in airports is ground up and trashed?

- Heads up: new dietary guidelines. Bye bye, food pyramid.

- Homemade break-and-bake cookies. I need this for the occasional craving.

- I'm surprised by how much I hate the new two-tone Le Creuset line.

- All the ways Shakespeare killed his characters.

- Last but not least, these are the books The Millions' staff is most excited for in the first half of 2016.
