Nonfiction is A-Ok, when it's about food

Pin It I'm currently reading Anthony Bourdain's "A Cook's Tour" and it's probably the first nonfiction book I've read since graduating college. After having to read horrible things about being successful at your job and managing crisis communication, I've stayed away from anything that didn't whisk me away into some imaginary world.

But, this book is awesome. Bourdain is hilariously bitter and makes me hungry with his descriptions, despite the gross things he ends up eating. I think I'm developing a crush for this old dude, who is so skinny, even though he ends up eating 10 meals a day. My husband says it's the smoking. Sigh, why must I be allergic to cigarette smoke?

What I really wanted to read was Mark Bittman's "Food Matters", but my library doesn't have it. What are they good for, these libraries? So, if you like me, you should buy it for me.
