I have spent the loveliest two weeks reading Molly Wizenberg’s memoirs – Delancey featured here, and the equally good A Homemade Life. Both are as much cookbooks as memoirs, with a recipe tied to every family story and memory. These  will charm  readers and cooks alike.

For fans of the wildly popular blog of the same name, this book needs no introduction. For ones that haven't heard of it, take notice! Alie Brosh combines naive art with an expert eye for perspective and expression, with hilarious, hyper-personal observations.  There may be many blogs-cum-books out there, but this is certainly the most successful this year.

Only one man has performed David Bowie's "Space Oddity" in space -- and then he returned to earth and wrote a book. If you enjoyed Commander Hadfield's videos and pictures during his stay on the International Space Station, you'll love his take space travel, farm life, and being prepared for anything.
