July Reading Round Up

July Reading Round Up My July reading has been heavy on the detective fiction. I am doing some interesting food reading, but that will most likely end up either as individual reviews or as parts of food philosophy type posts. I’m also doing a fair bit of food and theology reading as part of the…

June Reading Roundup

My June reading roundup is a little shorter than the last three months. In part, that’s because I didn’t do any mystery novel writing this month. Although, I did watch several episodes of Rumpole of the Bailey, along with the first two series of The Brokenwood Mysteries. Both are highly enjoyable. In part, I included Adam Federman’s, Fasting and Feasting,…

March Reading Roundup

I’ve been doing a fair bit of reading during the month of March. Much of it revolves around food, but there are books of theology and detective fiction. As I’ve been reading I’m discovering that not everything I’ve read, allows for the longer-form posts that I’m trying to write. So beginning this month, I plan…

More Crime and Cuisine

I’m taking a bit of a break from the series I just started, to do an addition to another topic that I beg a while ago. A couple of months ago, i wrote a post on some of my favourite fictional detective figures where food plays a significant roles in either the stories or character…
