 I read across a broad range of book genres, with an emphasis on Aus/NZ lit, Russian and Ukrainian literature, Latin-American literature and European history.


Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate) - Amy Thomas A prettily written book about Paris and New York, by a New Yorker, that will certainly appeal to those who have a sweet tooth for which they will go to any lengths to satisfy. I don't know whether I will visit Paris or New York in my lifetime, but if I do, thanks to this book, I will certainly know what confections I definitely have to gorge myself on and what beverages I must quaff. Perhaps, most importantly, I will know what attitude(s) to expect from the French. Anyway, some of the more bizarre dishes mentioned have managed to motivate me to think about altering recipes I am already familiar with-which I am happy to do at this stage.
