Recommended Reading List Updated for Winter 2011

Guess how many new books are released every day? Yeah, I have no clue either, but it's a lot. Too many to keep track of, though we do try. Today we've updated our Recommended Reading page with a bunch of new titles for Winter 2011. These are books we've reviewed on the site, or just books we came across and thought looked cool. Here are some that I liked (make sure to click through to see them all):


Fiesta at Rick's: Fabulous Food for Great Times with Friends

I watch Rick's show on public television in the afternoons after picking up Ayla from daycare. I can safely say she doesn't like it, but I find his goofy enthusiasm pleasant.

	 Thinking with Type, 2nd revised and expanded edition: A Critical Guide for Designers, Writers, Editors, & Students (Design Briefs)

If you're not into typography, this could be the book that starts you off. A classic, revised an expanded in this second edition.

Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People By Amy Sedaris

Does anyone not want to just marry Amy Sedaris? Ok, you're right, that's weird. But from the looks of it, you guys have already been buying up this book (I see it in our Amazon associate referrals), so at least that's a start. "It's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex ... Amy Sedaris sets the record straight." You go, girl.


The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook: Featuring More Than 1,200 Kitchen-Tested Recipes From America's Test Kitchen

I've said it before; this is my favorite cook book. It's stuffed with great recipes and even greater tips about how to actually cook them and even greater-er money-saving kitchen gear reviews. You will love this book; guaranteed.

I could not agree more with the ATK's Family Cookbook rec - that thing changed my life and I've been pushing it on my friends and family ever since.
