THE HOMEMADE PANTRY: 101 FOODS YOU CAN STOP BUYING AND START MAKING ($14.98) I love, love this cookbook. Author Alana Chernila makes whipping up pantry staples easy peasy lemon squeezy. Any semi-intrepid home cook will be psyched to learn that it's way easier than you would imagine to make kitchen staples.
Great reviews. Have not read yet, but top of the list! "A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single sitting, with stunning psychological and emotional depth and sophistication, The Sense of an Ending is a brilliant new chapter in Julian Barnes’s oeuvre."
This is a scary sci fi book that takes place in a reality where the religious right has taken over, and abortion is considered murder. Also, the punishment is no longer jail, but "melachroming" or having one's skin turned a different color. In this case, red. It's basically a futuristic retelling if The Scarlet Letter. Read it!
