I have, within the last year, been obsessed with reading about food. I just found out the name of the genre and I was super psyched. I thought I would post a few of the books I can remember reading. Here they are in no particular order: Heat; The Omnivore's Dilema; Eat, Pray, Love; Trail of Crumbs; Garlic and Sapphires; Tender at the Bone; Comfort Me with Apples; United States of Arugula; Waiting; and Julie and Julia. I'm sure there are some I am forgetting. To answer your question: No, I don't get hungry reading about food.
