With all the foodie book information I pick up from all the food blogs I read, my U. S. Amazon wish list is getting bigger and bigger by the minute...
Earlier this year, my brother and I were chatting about it, and he suggested I check out Japan's Amazon. So, I've been slowly buying from Japan Amazon. With the yen-dollar exchange rate and the books that I want, sometimes buying American books from Japan's Amazon is not very reasonable in fact, it is sometimes more expensive.
On top of that, the airlines started restricting the baggage weight to 50 lbs, so maybe paying a little extra for the books that I want to be delivered directly to my home, may actually be a good thing. So, I calculated and figured out the difference of yen-dollars. Here are some of the books that I've bought...
"The Accidental Foodie", this book wasn't available on the U.S. Amazon, but I was able to get it at the Japan one.
"La Dolce Vita", if you are a chocolate lover, this book is definitely for you. I was able to get the paperback version on the Japan Amazon, only the hardcover version is available on the U.S. Amazon.
Here's what I've bought recently but haven't gotten around to reading...."Like Water for Chocolate"
"Chocolate: A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light"
"Slow Food: The case for taste"
"The Chocolate Connoisseur"
"In My Mother's Kitchen"
"Bread and Chocolate"
"The Book of Salt"
Lots of delicious reading to do...
