This is the coolest idea ever, so I'm passing it along to everyone I know. "Cook the Books" is a bimonthly blog for everyone who loves to read and cook, but never though the two would marry well (Sure, we may have occasionally thought that they'd get together for a hook up now and again, but the violent splatters that come from spaghetti sauce just seemed like a deal breaker for the witty yet very sensitive pages of our Terry Pratchett books.).
The club picks a new book to read every two months. Once you're finished reading, you're given a deadline by which to blog about the book and cook a meal inspired by the book. I idea is great and the food photos look delicious!
The books seem a bit too girly for me (I tend to read less steamy bedroom scenes and deep conversations with girlfriends, and more comedy and comedic gore.), but it made me think what I would end up cooking... I just finished Christopher Moore's book "Bite Me" about vampire humans, cats, rats and parakeets in San Francisco. Hmmm... blood sausage? :P
Whether you're a fan of the books or not, I highly recommend checking out the site. It's definitely a way to everyone cooking and reading more.
