Bookshelf Favorites :: The Cereal Book

DSC_2109You may or may not know that I’m currently working towards a masters degree in library/information science. I love collecting books, but unlike many of my library pals, I know nothing about current young adult novels or classic romances. They always make me want to get back into reading novels, but my usual books of choice are food, home, or lifestyle related. When I do think to read a novel, I’ll probably try to find it at the library or purchase a digital copy. I thought it would be fun to share some of the books that I thought were cool enough to spend money on and stick on my shelf. These are usually something that I can use as a reference or something that is just really cool looking and fun to share with others. You might say coffee table books, but at the moment I don’t have a coffee table so…

The first book I want to share with you guys is The Great American Cereal Book. This is one of those books that I wish I had thought to write myself. As a long time cereal lover this sounds like it would be the ultimate research project. It’s filled with stats, stories, and pictures of cereals from as far back as the 1860’s to now. It’s really fun to see how much packaging has changed and which cereals were only around for a year or two. Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the fun stuff you can find inside…
