I checked out Donna Korn's Wheat Free Worry Free book from the library but did not have time to get very far before I had to return it (and they wouldn't let me renew b/c it is very popular - it's already falling apart) :) Just wondering if anyone had any opinions on whether this was worth buying or not? I can get most of my recipes online, and get advice, etc. online, but sometimes I just like to sit down with a good book and I was actually enjoying the first 90 pages of this.....
Or any other celiac books you would recommend buying?

I think Wheat Free Worry Free is a great book for anyone new to the gluten-free lifestyle. I have it and would recommend it. Another "must read", IMO, is Dangerous Grains.

I love my book. I use it all the time when I have a concern or question. I recieved it as a gift and it was one of the best things I've got since going gluten-free

thank you for your replies - I think I'll get it (less than $10 on amazon and free shipping if I order some more yummy gluten-free food) :)

Great book - very entertaining, somewhat of a unique perspective on celiac disease (and especially how to cope w/ it), enjoyable to read.
