We haven’t had one of these chats in a while, and now seems like a good time to find out what folks are newly digging into — or what books you’re recommending or giving as gifts this year! (Or asking for! I requested the Grossy Pelosi cookbook, myself.) (I love a cookbook gift.) I’m currently reading Among the Bros: A Fraternity Crime Story, which I heard about on The Stripe (which has great book recommendations), and which is, so far, a SPEEDY and also insane read. (Don’t ask me why I love crime books at Christmas.) Your turn — what are you reading, giving, or requesting??
