Offer – Neil Gaiman Kindle Books

You haven’t read all Neil Gaiman books? Me neither. Well, now seems to be the perfect time. As Neil Gaiman’s new book The Ocean at the End of the Lane is out since yesterday (June 18th), it seems Amazon decided to lower the price on many Neil Gaiman Kindle books. You can get books like The Graveyard Book, Coraline or Stardust for under 5 Euros (I think they also are under $5 for US customers, I only see the price they charge for European customers and that’s usually higher and they are still under $5. Unfortunately, I cannot see the price information for the UK, but I think the same applies here. Just check.).

Just head over to your country’s Amazon site and search for Neil Gaiman Kindle books 🙂 Happy Shopping!

(It could be that other e-book platforms also lowered their price for the books. Go check!)

Incoming ARC – Provence, 1970

I am thrilled to announce that Clarkson Potter provided me with an advance reading copy (ARC) of Provence, 1970 by Luke Barr. The book will be out in October 2013. I will read it as soon as I can and then I’ll get back to you with a review.

Summary quoted from Random House¹:
Provence, 1970 is about a singular historic moment. In the winter of that year, more or less coincidentally, the iconic culinary figures James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, and Judith Jones found themselves together in the South of France. They cooked and ate, talked and argued, about the future of food in America, the meaning of taste, and the limits of snobbery. Without quite realizing it, they were shaping today’s tastes and culture, the way we eat now. The conversations among this group were chronicled by M.F.K. Fisher in journals and letters—some of which were later discovered by Luke Barr, her great-nephew. In Provence, 1970, he captures this seminal season, set against a stunning backdrop in cinematic scope—complete with gossip, drama, and contemporary relevance.

Twinings Goodie Bag

I’m a huge fan of Twinings, and I was one before all this happened. This goodie bag story actually started when Twinings announced on their Facebook page that they would hold an Easter Makes, Bakes and Treats Contest. At this point, I had already been in the process of crafting egg warmers out of felt for some days and so I thought, why not give it a shot? I took this picture of my egg warmers with a freshly-baked brioche bunny of the lot I made for some friends and posted it to Twinings’ Facebook wall.

Twinings reposted my picture, which made me very happy and now, about two weeks later, the mail man brought me this:

My very own Twinings goodie bag! Consisting of a Twinings tea apron, Twinings Everyday Tea and Twinings Camomile & Maple Sensation Tea!

Thank you Twinings 🙂

This is only part of what was in the box 😀

We decided to order the small “Mutter-Kind” box. It had tomatoes, carrots, 2 small cucumbers, 2 kiwis, 3 bananas, 4 small apples, mushrooms and an eggplant in it and cost about 14€. The produce is organic and looks fresh. The box was delivered to our door. As soon as we cook something, I’ll tell you more.
