Welcome to Foodies Read 2016!


Do you love reading books about food?  Do you want to find more recommendations of books to read and to sing the praises of books that you’ve loved?

You’re in the right place.  Starting in January 2016, I’ll be taking over Foodie Reads.

We will still have a challenge levels and for those of us who don’t like to plan that much there will be an a la carte option.

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.

What counts as a food book?  Any genre – fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, etc.  If food is a major part of the plot then it counts!

Each month I’ll have a new page for book reviews that you post.  You can find the page for the month linked here and on the blog’s right sidebar.  Each month will feature some posts from the last month.  Posts will be pinned to Pinterest and publicized on Twitter to get the word out.  Along the way there may be giveaways for participants.

  1. I’m so lame! I came by looking to link my wrap up post and realized I’d never linked my sign up post! I just did. This is one of my favorite challenges. I’m excited to do it again in 2017. Thanks for hosting.

    1. You aren’t too late! You can link up any reviews that you post from now on. The link for each month goes up on the 1st of the month. We’d love to have you join in.

  2. First time doing this challenge. I do enjoy some books in this genre, so I am hoping to at least make it through the low level. Best, and keep on blogging.

  4. What a creative reading challenge. it will be fun participating. I have Debbie of The Friday Friends to thank for alerting me to your challenge.

    1. Glad to have you! It is easy. All you need to do is to write a blog post whenever you read a book about food. Then come back here and link up your post to the page for that month. It is a great way to find out about a lot of books about food.
