These are the titles:

- Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married
- Last Chance Saloon
- Sushi For Beginners
- Angels
- Under the Duvet
- Further Under the Duvet
- Anybody Out There



Watermelon. Marian Keyes. Shining Desk
Title: Watermelon
Synopsis: At twenty-nine, fun-loving, good-natured Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to her first baby, James visits her in the recovery room to inform her that he's leaving her. Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at in the mirror. So, in the absence of any better offers, Claire decides to go home to her family in Dublin. To her gorgeous man-eating sister Helen, her soap-watching mother, her bewildered father. And there, sheltered by the love of an (albeit quirky) family, she gets better. A lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a bit of a surprise.

It's Friday!


Some time ago, I read there was a girl, whose name is Rebecca Black, was very known because of her song Friday. I looked for it on YouTube and I listened to that song.



The lyrics are fine for people who are learning English as a foreign language becasue they will learn the week-day names and its order. An example: "Yesterday was Thursday. Today it is Friday. (...) Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards". However, for those people who has more knoledge in English, will not find a fantastic story inside that song. The music is a bit catchy but the lyrics are not good. I guess that is why I have found a lot of parodies of this song on YouTube.


I have found a funny video. What would say Hitler after hearing Friday?




Enjoy this Friday and remember that tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards.

Cooking Books -- Random House

Collected and developed by celebrated pastry chef Fany Gerson, this sweet little cookbook showcases her favorite recipes for paletas, those flavor-packed ice pops made from an enormous variety of fruits, nuts, flowers, and even spices; plus shaved ice (raspados) and aguas frescas—the delightful Mexican drinks featuring whole fruit and exotic ingredients like tamarind and hibiscus flowers.

The Butcher's Guide to Well-Raised Meat. Shining Desk
Title: The Butcher's Guide to Well-Raised Meat
Authors: Joshua Applestone, Jessica Applestone and Alexandra Zissu
Synpsis: There is a food revolution sweeping the nation, changing the way Americans think and eat, and meat is at the heart of it. The butcher has reemerged in American culture as an essential guide in avoiding the evils of industrial meat—which not only tastes bad, but is also bad for one’s health and for the environment. Joshua and Jessica Applestone, a former vegan and vegetarian, are trailblazers in this arena. They run Fleisher’s, an old-school butcher shop with a modern-day mission—sourcing and selling only grass-fed and organic meat. The Applestones’ return to the nearly lost tradition of the buying and nose-to-tail carving of whole animals—all humanely raised close to their shop in New York’s Hudson Valley—has helped to make them rising stars in the food world.

The Butcher’s Guide to Well-Raised Meat is a compendium of their firsthand knowledge. This unique book—a guide, memoir, manifesto, and reference in one—shares everything one needs to know about well-raised meat, including why pastured meats are so much better than conventional ones and how to perfectly butcher and cook them at home. Readers will learn which cut of steak to look for as an alternative to the popular hanger (of which each steer has only one), how to host a driveway pig roast, and even how to break down an entire lamb (or just butterfly the shoulder)—all with accompanying step-by-step photographs. Differences among breeds and ideal cooking methods for various cuts and offal are covered, and the Applestones’ decoding of misleading industry terminology and practices will help consumers make smarter, healthier purchases that can also help change what’s wrong with meat in America today.

Complete with color and black-and-white photographs, illustrations, and more than a dozen recipes, The Butcher’s Guide to Well-Raised Meat is the definitive guide to eating great meat—responsibly.
