Weekend Book Reviews

Michael Booth's latest book is Super Sushi Ramen Express.  How can one not love that title?  The subtitle, One Family's Journey Through the Belly of Japan, gives a better explanation of the book.  Mr. Booth, his wife, and two children travel through Japan sampling authentic Japanese food.  I chose the book for the title, but I kept reading for the wonderful culinary descriptions.  I felt as if I were side by side with the Booth family as they ate their way through Japan.  The book included travel descriptions as well.  This is a great book for anyone interested in Japanese cuisine or Japan in general.

The Christmas Angel Project by Melody Carlson is a women's religious fiction novel with a holiday theme.  The book begins with the sudden passing of Abby who was the glue that held a small book club together.  Her final gift of angel ornaments reaches out to help the women with her passing and continue to bond them together.  It is a nice, light book which I easily read in two evenings.  This would be a great book to read closer to the holidays to get into the spirit.

Simple Steps to Foot Pain Relief by Katy Bowman is an updated version of her previous book.  The first half of the book is devoted to the anatomy of the foot.  Ms. Bowman also offers advice on the type of shoes to wear and to avoid.  She is an advocate of going barefoot which I find hard after breaking my foot.  We do agree that flip flops are made for the beach.  The second half of the book is full of easy to do foot exercises.  The book was a quick read very informative.  If you are interested in improving the health of your feet, this is a good choice!

disclosure:  I received these e-books from NetGalley but was not otherwise compensated for these reviews.  All opinions are my own!
