Forthcoming Literary Chocoliciousness

ChocolateChocolate by Lisa Yockelson will be published by Wiley in August. According to Publishers Weekly,

"Yockelson has produced a book that is both encyclopedic and deeply
personal, combining detailed information, clear instructions, and engaging
anecdotes. Even the most seasoned cacao bean lover will find surprises among the
200-plus recipes, while bakers at every level of expertise will appreciate
the meticulous guide to techniques and ingredients..."

I don't plan to make any of the recipes, but I do plan to buy the book so I can drool over it. Kinda like chocolate porn, I think.

An upcoming craft book (well, the publication date is May, so maybe I should start checking at Barnes and Noble) caught my eye: Altered Book Collage by Barbara Matthiessen, published by Sterling. Apparently, it involves recycling and reusing old books. Sounds interesting.
