Praise For…


“Joanna Gaines just made her first official foray into the food world with the launch of her cookbook, Magnolia Table, and we’re happy she did.”
MyDomaine

“My point is, I know a good biscuit when I see one (and more important, when I taste one). And in my opinion, Joanna Gaines has struck gold with a biscuit recipe that took her a year to develop.”
— Huffington Post

“Joanna and Chip Gaines’s announcement that Fixer Upper was ending thankfully coincided with the news of Jo’s first cookbook, Magnolia Table. Seven long months later, that cookbook is finally in stores, and fans have wasted no time singing its praises.”
— Delish

“From a beautiful but simple veggie and cheese quiche, to zesty grilled salmon with a refreshing cucumber salad, and a time-tested batch of chocolate chip cookies — each one of Gaines’s recipes holds the power to bring about an effortless gathering anywhere, anytime.”
— Refinery 29

“The latest in their growing portfolio includes… Joanna’s first cookbook… As she did with becoming a designer (she never had any formal design experience when she and Chip launched their home-flipping business), she’s taken an unconventional approach to cooking.”
People

“Some people just seem too good to be true. Joanna Gaines is one of those people… I’ve followed her recipes carefully and heeded her advice, and in my opinion, she can add successful cookbook author to her resume.”
— Mary Cadden, USA Today 

“Joanna Gaines is a multi-media force to be reckoned with… Gaines comes across as so likeable, approachable, and real on TV, and her charm and grace translate effortlessly to every page of Magnolia Table.”
— Philadelphia Inquirer 

“Anyone who’s ever watched HGTV’s Fixer Upper will immediately recognize Joanna Gaines’s style in her new cookbook… Magnolia Table is filled with family stories and memories surrounding meals; individual favorites… diverse recipes… and some recipes that are used in their restaurant.”
— PopSugar

“Joanna Gaines may be famous for her trend-setting taste in interior design, but she’s currently making waves in the culinary world with the release of her first cookbook.”

“Now that the shiplap-loving home décor guru has opened her own restaurant… we’re looking to her new cookbook, Magnolia Table, for every family meal from now on.”
— Pure Wow

“Flip open her new cookbook, Magnolia Table, and you’ll quickly find that Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines can navigate her way around the kitchen just as expertly as she does a construction site or wall of shiplap.”

“You can bring Gaines into your kitchen with her first cookbook… and it’s a page turner. A lot of cookbooks cross my desk each year. But this one caught my eye. It has a lot of recipes that will appeal to all, especially families.”
— Detroit Free Press

“Joanna’s recipes and gorgeous photography feel home-cooked, farm-raised, and restaurant ready all at once… Gaines is deeply rooted in her Southern culture—and Magnolia Table’s recipes truly illustrate that identity.”
— Cooking Light

“Everything Joanna Gaines touches is beautiful, including every recipe in her cookbook, Magnolia Table.
— Family Circle

“Once upon a time, in a land before the Magnolia Table cookbook, we never dreamed of straying from our family biscuits recipe. But when Joanna Gaines has some thoughts on biscuits, we listen… And having tasted these delectable, crumbly biscuits… we assure you, the detour is worth it.”
— Southern Living

How To Read More

If you love reading, but for some reason you read less and less, know that everything is fine. It happens.
Our lives today have so many things that distract us - how can we not put books away when all these movies, TV shows, YouTube videos, social networks and endless surfing in online stores are around ...
Yes, it's really hard to resist, but you certainly can!

In this article, we want to share with you some tips to read more often and more successfully.
These are some notes and some practices that we have collected for our SUNDOG BOOKS readers club.
And maybe it will bring more books into your life!

Why do we want/need to read more?

To start reading more, you have to understand why you need it.
And you will be surprised, but your goals can be quite varied:

- for work
If you read a lot on duty, then you definitely need to speed up the process. The logic here is simple: read faster → work faster → more time for books for yourself.

- for education
you need this for your educational career or sometimes you just want to read to learn. And, with all the new alternative ways to gain knowledge (podcasts, online courses and videos), the book still does an excellent job of this task too.

- for self-development
all exercises for increasing speed, one way or another, improve cognition and memory.

- for fun
because good books always = fun!

Book lovers have an additional special goal for reading more often. If you love literature, you will understand what we mean: you want to catch everything - to follow modern literature, and not forget about the classics, look into non-fiction and children's publications. And there’s so much you want to reread! The goals are ambitious, but attainable if you read a lot.

 

And so - How to read more:
We will tell you about the methods that we use ourselves. Perhaps some will suit you as well.

 

15 minutes a day

You've probably already heard this rule: if you want to start a healthy habit, devote 15 minutes a day to it. Once upon a time, we all read irregularly, in jumps and starts. Sometimes we cannot open a book we have begun weeks ago. Therefore, you should decide to create a rule: devote at least 15 minutes a day to reading. Try reading before bed, or maybe during lunchtime, or even when you are having your morning coffee.

You will see progress immediately. You will notice that almost always your 15 minutes will grow into half an hour or more. But the most remarkable thing is that in three weeks your hands themselves will be looking for a book.

 

50 First Pages
This method advises - If the book hasn't hooked you from the first 50 pages, put it aside! Life is too short to read uninteresting books.

It is necessary to change the approach to books. At first it will be hard for you to stop and put the book down. Even if we put the book away, it will seem to reproach us from the shelf, mocking us as quitters. But in the end we should come to one simple thought: if it doesn’t hook your attention, you should not force yourself to read it.

***Fifty pages is not a bad test. Not the most objective, but definitely effective. It helps to determine whether it interests you or not, and whether to spend time on things that do not excite.

 

Reader's Diary

This should be used to improve the quality of reading - to make it more conscious. For starters, it can be a simple notebook with headings:

  • Author
  • Year of publication
  • Main characters
  • Scene
  • Plot
  • Theme
  • Quotes

And, yes, a reader's diary is not a thing about quantity, but about quality. But, it can also motivate. When you open your diary and start looking at quotes (especially quotes), you immediately really want to read.

 

Maybe a Book Bet?
Several people can participate. Members of the betting group can come from friends, family, and also your colleagues. And of course you can set your own rules for participation, but we'll give you a simple example:

Everyone in the group should read and review a book over the course of a month with weekly updates. Anyone who does not finish a review buys the book for all other participants for the next month.

 

Speed Reading

Another effective way to increase the amount you read is speed reading. The logic here is simple - the faster you read, the more books you can enjoy.

*There are many online courses on speed reading, and you can also study on your own using instructional books. But, it is worth noting that this is a serious learning process that will require some effort on your part.

 

Outcome

Reading every day is quite attainable, the main thing is to try to make it a habit.
Sometimes, instead of heading for Facebook, try opening a book and soon you won’t even remember why you needed to wander around social media.
And also - don't forget about audiobooks. They are a cool way to take the load off your eyes sometimes and just immerse yourself in the story. Some books are really strong in voice acting.
