Book and Cook might be a new favorite for me. I love when our book club meets and we eat foods from the books.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I'm not sure if this is quite the right place for this, BUT I'm not able to start a topic of my own. Am I missing something or have I not done something I was supposed to for that option to be enabled?

You should be able to unless it is about self-promoting. About that, you can read about it here:

I haven't done any of that. I did check the FAQ's about how to start a new topic, and I don't see any of the options on my screen that it says to use.
