What’s Uncle Markie Reading?

After a day of getting settled back into the Seattle routine…. Doing laundry, running errands, all the stuff that sucks up the day after a return, it’s time for Uncle Markie’s Book Corner.

99 Drams of Whiskey: The Accidental Hedonist’s Quest for the Perfect Shot and the History of the Drink  (Hardcover)

Kate Hopkins

It didn’t get the best of reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, but it’s a lovely stroll through three whiskey regions. I’m about half way through and finding it quite enjoyable. But, then again, I like my whiskey. I also like knowing about the history of taxation and it’s role in how whiskey is made.

Turns out she is also a local Seattle author. I picked it up on the remainders rack at Compass Books in the San Francisco airport.

Click on the book and it will take you right to Amazon, and I get a few shekels for mentioning it.

Other than that, a quiet evening at home having a steak and some coleslaw. Nice not to have to rush off for some folkloric performance.
