Resting on a shelf, hiding in a room, craving to be opened lays an assortment of cook books gathering dust. It is disgraceful to subject these culinary companions to this betrayal. What is the reason for such treachery? The answer lies in the very next room, the room of renovations.
New ceilings, new windows, new doors stole the spotlight. They needed attention, they needed compound and prime and paint. Though those pages of sweet literary nourishment need not worry, the pain they have been suffering is but temporary. The room of renovations is nearly complete and a festival of baking will ensue to honor the deed.
The dust will be removed, the pages will be freed, the knowledge will be spread. Rest well on that idle shelf hungry guides, for soon that shelf will become the shelf of activity.
