Favorite Wine Books?
I am looking to read a new book about wine. I have been inspired by the monthly give-a-way to look into some new reading material.
For info about the Snooth Give-a-way: http://www.snooth.com/sweeps/snooth-zesterdaily-wine-library-giveaway/
I have only purchased a few books and have only finsihed like one. I am not a very fast reader and am looking for something informative but easy to read.
Books I have:
Wine Bible - Great all-inclusive book but not necessarily and easy read. --
Windows on the World - Must have. May go through this one again.
The Spirituality of Wine - Interesting read about who religion and wine intertwine.
I love Windows on the World... very informative. I also really like Mark Oldman's Brave New World of Wine. The book gives a lot of great suggestions and really gets you thinking about trying new wines.

Wine for Dummies - http://www.amazon.com/Wine-Dummies-Ed-McCarthy/dp/0470045795/
Well-written, somewhat humorous introduction to the world of wine, it's become sort of a standard tutorial for layfolk.

i would have to second the wine for dummies book...
but my fav is the Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia.... but this is more of, well, encyclopedia... not sure if it's a page turner, cover to cover... i've read it through... and watched paint dry... you get the idea : )
i'm getting ready to start Judgement of Paris, California vs France and the 1976 Paris Tasting That Revolutionized the Wine World, by George M. Taber... i think it'll be a good read....
