2017 Foodies Read Reading Challenge Sign Up

I love this challenge and I've been participating in the past couple of years.  It's been especially fun since many of my beloved cozies are culinary ones. This challenge is hosted by Based on A True Story  Here are the details...

Do you read books about food?  There are books about food in so many different genres.
  • Cozy mysteries set in bakeries
  • Romance books set in tea shops
  • Nonfiction books about the history of ingredients
  • Cookbooks
  • Memoirs from chefs or waiters or people who just love to eat
  • …the list goes on and on.  Need more ideas? Check out our Pinterest page!

Want to challenge yourself?  Pick a level below.

Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books
Pastry Chef: 4 to 8 books
Sous-Chef: 9 to 13 books
Chef de Cuisine: 14 to 18
Cordon-Bleu Chef: More than 19

Don’t like to plan?  Choose the a la carte option and let us know when you read a book about food.

Each month I’ll have a new page for book reviews that you post.  You can find the page for the month linked on the blog’s right sidebar.  Posts will be pinned to Pinterest and publicized on Twitter to get the word out.
There are monthly giveaways.  Every participant is entered in a drawing to win a food-themed book.  I try to have options in several genres so you can pick one that you will love!
