Country #20 – Solomon Islands

I’ve recently started a new job, after a crazy couple of years, and I’m jealously guarding my energy reserves right now. One thing I haven’t felt like doing is cooking, but I have been all about reading. So at this point, I’m just forging ahead with the literary side of this blog, and when culinary inspiration strikes again I’ll cook up a storm…

Country #20 is the Solomon Islands. I know very little about this part of the world, so I’m very interested in this new adventure.

    Solomon Islands is a tough one to find books for. I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve picked.
