Hardcover vs Paperback 102

The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel & Nancy Garfinkel

Hardcover (Used by two publishers)


Loyalty, loss, and the ties that bind: These are the ingredients of The Recipe Club, a "novel cookbook" that combines an authentic story of friendship with more than eighty delicious recipes.
Lifelong friends Lilly and Val are united as much by their differences as by their similarities. In childhood, "LillyPad" and "ValPal" form an exclusive two-person club, writing intimate letters in which they share hopes, fears, deepest secrets . . . and recipes—from Lilly's "Lovelorn Lasagna" to Valerie's "Forgiveness Tapenade." The Recipe Club sustains Lilly and Val's bond across the decades: through the challenges of independence, the joys and heartbreaks of first love, and the emotional complexities of family relationships, identity, mortality, and goals deferred—until the fateful day when an act of kindness becomes an unforgivable betrayal. 

Here's another one I've read! I rather like the coloration of the paperback and the detail in the pots and pans, definitely more memorable so that is where my vote will go!

  1. I like the simplicity of the egg better. I vote hardcover. ;)

  2. I like the paperback better, too.

  3. Yeah, I have to go with the hardcover too. There's something about that solitary egg that I really like.

  4. Love the paperback. Makes me want to go into the kitchen and cook. The hardcover is way too dull.

  5. I actually like both of them!

  6. The paperback is so much prettier!
