Announcing the Winner of How to Build A Fire

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway of Erin Bried’s How to Build a Fire And Other Handy Things Your Grandfather Knew. Your comments did not do anything to dissuade me from my love of all things grandfatherly. Some of my favorites? “Be true to your teeth, or they will be false to you,” and “Boredom is a state of mind.” Tru dat, Gpas. Congratulations to Diane Baum, commenter 40, whose number was chosen with the help of random.org. Hope you enjoy the book, Diane! For the rest of you, there are lots of great cookbooks and other food-related books coming off the presses these days. Stay tuned for more reviews and giveaways soon.
