What are your eco-hacks?

I ran across this article on Offbeat Home this morning, and it got me thinking about what (new) small changes I can make to create a more sustainable way to live in the city.  I’m the resident greenie at home.  Mr Bookeater is certainly a staunch supporter of this – I just happen to spend…

Omtastic: The Yoga Upswing

Who feels like talking about Yoga Practice today?  I’d also like to discuss how pretentious I feel calling it My Yoga Practice.  (It makes me feel pretentious. That’s it.) I have a weird relationship with yoga because I love it so damn much, but never seem to stick to it with anything vaguely resembling regularity….

Valentine nommables: Gluten free Chocolate Tart & Coffee Meringues

Not that I ever need an excuse for chocolate, but what good timing!  Here’s a super simple chocolate tart, just in time for the day of luuuurve. Full disclosure: this recipe is very similar to the gluten free key-lime pie recipe I posted last week, but there is a great reason for this. The recipe…

Armchair Travel for the macabre inclined: Sedlec Ossuary, Czech Republic

The Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora, Czech Republic is a brilliant spot for the macabre-inclined tourist.  When, in a brilliant marketing move, the church’s Abbot sprinkled earth from Golgotha around the cemetery, he created a famous cemetery that did not require Jim Morrison’s celeb cachet….

Well, that escalated quickly: Gluten-free key lime pie

The spectre of gluten intolerance has been looming over our house for a couple of months, and my partner has recently confirmed that he’s partially gluten intolerant – to particular types or strains of wheat. I had no idea that was even A Thing, so it’s only a matter of time before my curiosity gets…

Armchair Travel: Madagascar

Armchair travel: because Monday mornings are never all that easy, and sometimes Tuesdays are even worse.  I love a good session of imaginary travel.  It may mean that my list of places to visit will stay never-ending until forever, but I’m of the opinion it’s the World’s fault.  If it wasn’t so endlessly interesting, and…

An Official Introduction

Well, hello there internets. I feel an introduction might be in order. My name is Jennifer Laneulie a.k.a. the Endangered Bookeater. My blog’s name arose out of a lifelong love of reading – I’ve been voraciously devouring books for as long as I can remember (and even before my memory kicked in, according to outside…
