aperitif reading

Some years ago, we discovered the wonders of reading aloud before dinner. In the summertime, we sit on the porch or in the back yard, listen to the sounds of the neighbourhood, read and sip on aperitifs. In winter, we sit in the kitchen because it's the warmest room. We usually read a book on travel or food or both. It takes us ages to get through a book because invariably something in the book triggers a memory or discussion.

Not all the books we have read before dinner are listed below (alphabetically by author's last name), only the titles I have managed to remember.... Most of these books can be found at bookfinder.com, an excellent resource that lists "which booksellers are offering the best prices and selection".
