This was a bit lighter than I was expecting, but it was fun to read. Kind of a fluffy little book. I did enjoy the first half more than the second half. This was my first Robin Sloan novel and I enjoyed it enough to want to pick up "Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" at some point.

I really enjoyed this quirky little book as a sourdough lover myself. It was really fun, but also had very nice message in it and I will definitely recommend it to friends.

Wow~~!! Thank you so much!! I am so excited to receive this.
I enjoy Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore very much, and I simply love bread - I love bread in its toothsome, chewy, doughy, yeasty, holey, wheaty glory... don't talk gluten free to me! So when I read in the newspaper review that the author has a new book about bread, I know I want to read it!

Thank you, thank you!!

I love this book! I love it more than Mr. Penumbra, probably because Lois, a girl living alone with a cactus, learning to bake bread, is so much more identifiable for me. It makes me want to have a dough of my own. But then I realize that I do make my own yogurt and kombucha, so yes I do have some happy cultures living with me. Even if they haven't shown their smily faces yet.

I planned to read this for the food bookbox, but midway I was enjoying it so much, I want to share it at the swap at the BC con. After finishing the book, it becomes clear to me... yes, I think the dough would love very much to visit Germany.

Guess what, my friend gifted me a sourdough starter! It's living happily in my fridge. Unfortunately, I am not as capable a baker as Lois, so only half of my bread is good. The other half, while they did expand quite a lot when fermenting, turned out too dense after baking. : ( Still trying...

Meanwhile, this book is all packed up for its trip!

I won this book in the bookswapgame, looking forward to reading it. I’m a bit of hobby-baker, so it seems very nice!

Journal Entry 13 by wingEnitnajwing at Tilburg, Noord-Brabant Netherlands on Thursday, January 16, 2020
The start was a bit tough, I thought, and it wasn’t clear to me in the beginning who the main character was. But gradually the story grew on me, which ofcourse is quite fitting for a book about sourdough. And then I couldn’t put it down anymore... Loved it!
I love baking, but never used a starter. But I’m tempted now... (although...)
Thanks, I’ll try to find a suitable next reader :-)

Enitnaj really highly recommended this book, so it's now with me! And after reading janna2 and bookguide want te read it too. You did a good job Enitnaj :-)

No, I'm not going to make a starter to bake my own bread, but I've got to confess I was considering it........ Great how Robin (who turned out to be a man, I saw it later and didn't expect) told about the fascination with baking bread and everything else Lois experienced!
here a link with a moving cover :-)
