May 2008 Cruise -- Book List

Departure for our next cruise, this time on Carnival Glory, is coming soon. Here are some of the books we'll be taking with us to read while sitting on our cabin's balcony.

Books for the cruise

In the land of the Magic Pudding, A gastronomic miscellany, a history of what Australians eat, edited by Barbara Santich

Kitchen Confidential, Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, by Anthony Bourdain

Licks of Love, Short Stories and a Sequel, "Rabbit Remembered," by John Updike

The Letters of Noël Coward, edited by Barry Day

Permanent Passenger, My Life on a Cruise Ship (Assistant Cruise Director, Carnival Ecstasy), by Micha Berman

Something from the Oven, Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America, by Laura Shapiro

4 Privet Drive, Little Whingeing, SurreyWe will also take several Harry Potter books. Right now we are re-reading the whole series and we're finding there are lot of details of the characters and story we missed in the first reading. J.K.Rowling's writing is so compelling that the first read is a race to get to the next plot point. The second reading is a treat.

And there's always the ship's library for more things to read on board.
