Favorite Pastime: Shopping for Books

Our no. 1 favorite pastime is reading. We will forego swimming, dining, hiking, driving, playing, partying—almost anything—in order to tuck up on the couch or get comfy on the patio, with no one to interrupt, until we read “The End.” It’s our bliss, our heaven on Earth.

We would like to thank Hans Röckenwagner for sharing his ever-popular avocado fries recipe, as may be seen in his latest cookbook Das Cookbook.
