1. Boozehound by Jason Wilson: To read Jason Wilson is to love Jason Wilson. Jason, the spirits columnist for the Washington Post, is one of the smartest writers I know. And in this eclectic collection he offers funny and opinionated essays on booze and recipes. I think this book is a great read and a perfect stocking stuffer for the boozelover in your life.
2. I have been a long time fan of Liza Donnelly so when her publisher sent me her book, I knew I was in for a treat. When do they serve the wine? is a terrifically funny book by long-time New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly. It is a hysterical look at what it means to be a woman in today's world. Donnelly not only offers insight, her cartoons make my days brighter! An excellent book by an woman who deserves to be placed on the pedestal!
3. Fits, Starts and Matters of the Heart-
This book is so close to my heart for so many reasons. First, it is a collection of 28 true stories, all about relationships, love and loss and features some of my most favorite essayists: Andrea King Collier, Denise Schipani, D. Cameron Lawrence, Jody Mace and so many more. And I am happy to say that one of my essays – all about my love of nutella – made the collection. This is the PERFECT book for the season – curl up with this collection, a cup of tea and a you will be rewarded with exceptional writing, a great sense of gratitude and a yearning for more. What more can a book possibly deliver?
So folks – I am giving away ALL THREE to one winner. All you have to do is tell me what your favorite book has been so far this Fall… Love to hear it. Post your comment here on my blog.
