Inspired by one of my favorite card games as well as my penchant for patterns, Spoons is where I seek out four-of-a-kinds in otherwise very different books; they may have, for example, characters with the same name, covers featuring the same object, stories about the same place, or brief mentions of jars of peanut butter.
Happy Friday! I have yet another food-related cover four-of-a-kind this week, one that will reveal the ingredients for making the perfect scrambled eggs (according to a variety of sources). Your breakfast (and your TBR list) will be changed forever. Are you ready?
- Eggs by Jerry Spinelli (Middle Grade) / A nine-year-old and a thirteen-year-old form an unlikely friendship in order to find solace in each other’s company through troubled times.
- Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages by Anne Mendelson (Non-Fiction) / A food history-cookbook about milk and dairy products. (My most likely-to-read book from this edition!)
- Butter by Erin Jade Lange (Young Adult) / Butter, an obese boy, gains surprising (and disturbing) popularity when he announces that he’s going do a live broadcast of him eating himself to death.
- Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky (Non-Fiction) / A book about world history tied together by salt. (Katie @ Doing Dewey considers this “an entertaining and educational read.”)
Do you have a better scrambled eggs recipe? Let me know!
