Eat your words. Really. It’s time to admit you may have been wrong about what those words mean. I mean, find a good book, and cook it. If you’re looking for something to do while limited to being indoors, I’d like to suggest some books and food novels with not just a good story, but also some good recipes that might be fun to try. Goodreads has a great list of them.
This is by no means an exhaustive list. Access your library’s online resources. Plus, there are literally thousands of free books available to you all within reach of your smartphone, tablet or computer. The following references will help get you started on setting up your own virtual library without spending a dime.
