Friday Finds

This week I added three new books to the collection:

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, by Tiffany Baker. This is an advance reader copy courtesy of Hachette; it's coming out in January in hardcover and looks like fun.
Next up is just-announced Booker Prize winner The White Tiger, by (as it turns out, friend-of-a-friend) Aravind Adiga. (Moazzam, do you think after he's done talking to Oprah he'd do an interview for my blog? Hahaha.)

Last but certainly not least, there is Francois Payard's Chocolate Epiphany. M. Payard owns a fancy bakery in New York that just happens to have a branch at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, where I stayed this summer, and where I spent a lot of time (and money) on the many delectibles on offer. So naturally I could not say non to this ravishing cookbook. Can't wait to start cooking!
