I wanted to create a little 2013 calendar for collectors of Martha's books since there are several fun releases in the pipeline from Martha's publisher, Clarkson Potter. This year, there are four books on offer (so far) and each one will end up on my bookshelf. I don't have all of Martha's books. (I cannot tell a lie.) I collect the ones that I feel best suit my life and my interests. Since I am not an advanced or prolific cook or baker, I only have seven of the dozens of cookbooks she has written over the years. I have her 'classics' of course, such as Entertaining, Gardening Month By Month, New Old House, Martha Stewart's Wedding Cakes and Martha's Entertaining. These books define what I love most about Martha: the drive for aesthetic excellence and the realization of inspiring ideas. Below is a list of the books Martha will release in 2013 with their release dates. Each of these can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com, or you can simply mark the release dates on your calendar if you'd rather pick up the books at your favourite local book store, as I usually do.
