It’s exciting to welcome another new member–Mellissa from A Fit and Spicy Life. Her blog encompasses food, wine, travel, and fitness. She also writes restaurant reviews around Minneapolis, USA, and the surrounding area. Please pop over to her blog and say hello!
A good way for members to keep up with the changes in our group is to follow the RSS feed bundle of all our members’ blogs–click on the link in the sidebar. If you subscribe you will never need to worry about updating the feeds as it is all done for you as new members arrive in our group. The bundle includes the Kitchen Reader blog, so you will always be informed about the group’s news.
If you prefer a more streamlined option, just subscribe to the Kitchen Reader blog (also in the sidebar). Every month you can use the post with the round-up of our book reviews to see what everyone else thinks of our books. Either way, it’s easy to stay connected with Mellissa and all our friends at the Kitchen Reader.
Hello Readers! It’s with pleasure that I introduce Julie from Savvy Eats as our newest member. Her well-organised blog focuses on food and fitness. She recently attended Camp Blogaway and gave awards to the sessions she liked the most. Please pop over to her blog, learn, and enjoy!
A fair number of us Kitchen Readers also participate in other blog events. At the end of the month, when we post, the blogging schedule can seem quite crowded, especially if you participate in weekly and monthly events. It seems sensible to me that we change our posting rules slightly to make the end of the month easier. And since the topic of our posts is not a secret, I don’t think it’s a problem if we post on different days. Therefore, please post your book reviews in the last week of the month. I will compile a list of the reviews and post them here a few days later in a round-up on the first of the following month. (Or you can use the RSS feed bundle in the sidebar to keep up with the other member’s posts!)
Thanks so much to all of you who participate! It’s our thoughtful discussions and lively commenting that help make this such a great group to be in. I look forward to reading your reviews of Salt by Mark Kurlansky any day after 24 May. I hope you will come back to check out (and visit) the reviews of the group, which will be posted here on 1 June.
Thank you to everyone who read and posted about our April book, My Life from Scratch: A Sweet Journey of Starting Over, One Cake at a Time by Gesine Bullock-Prado (chosen by Shelley at My Little Chickadees). You can read the blog posts here:
The reviews make really interesting reading, with differing opinions. In May we are reading Salt: A World History, chosen by Stacy of Little Blue Hen. We’ll all be posting about it on our blogs on the last day of May (please include links to this blog and Stacy’s). Check back here on June 1 for the round-up. Visit the Book List tab to see all our upcoming selections, which are chosen three months in advance to give everyone lots of planning time.
New members are always welcome; please invite your friends or email us if you’re interested!
