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!

I'm waiting for Little Giants to arrive. It sounds really good.

I have Little Giants too - really looking forward to it. I am intrigued by The White Tiger and look forward to hearing more about it.

I resisted requesting The Little Giant, so I'll be interested to see your review.

I can't wait to read you review of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County. That book sounds interesting!

Despite all the noise of The White Tiger, I enjoyed the book a lot. It's very original and sarcastic. Once you get over the first 30 pages it's a page turner. I gave it a good review.

I started The Little Giants of Aberdeen County this morning. I'm about 40 pages into it and it's quite interesting. Big baby who outgrows all her clothes.

I didn't know he and Oprah were on talking terms with each other :)

I can try. Let me know if you are serious. I can only imagine how bombarded he is with requests right now.
