The Power of 3:
I've noticed something over the last couple years. I tend to buy books in "three's". While it's not as fascinating as say, the Number 23 enigma. The purchases have weird pattern to them.
I bought my "sushi trilogy" at the same time:
Then there my "Chinese Food" trilogy, which I also bought at the same time:
Of course, this one could get off on a technicality, since I preordered Serve the People, and it didn't arrive until several weeks ago. I just finished The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, and really enjoyed Jennifer 8 Lee's writing style. I'm still working on Shark's Fin and Sichuan Pepper, which may end up being one of my favorites.
Last year, I ordered my "Japanese Cookbook Trilogy":
The reason for purchasing Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art, has an interesting story behind it. I don't know how, or why, but my Mom owned a copy of that book. After she passed away, it disappeared...or maybe got accidentally discarded, I'm not sure. So when I saw that the 25 anniversary edition had been published, I bought it.
This one might be stretching it, but it's kinda, sorta my "food science trilogy":
I know Sauces by James Peterson might be pushing it, but I spent 3 hours reading through it after it arrived.
So do you think this is a bit strange? I'm not trying to get all Jim Carrey on you, but I just noticed this weird habit.
