Hello and welcome to Edible Books. We are Christina and Natalie, your hosts. We live in Seattle, USA and Sheffield, UK respectively and became friends through our love of food, the great outdoors and each other’s blogs.
Our idea for the club came about one evening during idle chatter on Twitter. Somehow we ended up discussing the possibility of an on-line book club. Before we knew it emails were being tossed around like pancakes, ideas were being cooked up and Edible Books was served.
“Foodie, blogger, photography and gardening enthusiast, community garden volunteer and stay-at-home mum to one I am pretty busy but I always try to make time at the end of my day to spend time reading. I have a wide selection of books from classics to celebrity autobiographies on my [real and virtual] shelves some of which have been well read and some never opened. Edible Books is my first book club and I am so excited about the books we will read and the discussions that they may provoke.” Natalie.
About Me: Christina
“I am passionate about food, travel, writing, running, and reading. I write about food and travel on my blog, rowdychowgirl.com. I have always been a book lover, from many summer afternoons as a girl lost in Nancy Drew books , to my ideal Sunday afternoon now—snuggled up on the couch with my Kindle after a long run. I am a member of a long-standing book club (over a decade and counting!) and feel so lucky to have those fabulous gatherings—full of food, drink, laughter, and even some book discussion—as a constant in my life. I’m thrilled to take that book club dynamic of connection and spirited discussion global with Edible Books.” Christina.
