    01:05:08
    We wouldn't call ourselves particular... except we like gingerbread in the form of cookies and cake, rather than houses and men, ok?

The books we talked about at the top of the episode were Ramen Forever by Tim Anderson, Bitter by Alexina Anatole and Roast Figs, Sugar Snow by Diana Henry.Lovely Swindler - AmariaSmith the Mister
