The Martha Stewart library will continue to expand this fall and winter with two new volumes: Martha's 97th and 98th book, respectively. (That means we only have two more books until Martha's autobiography is published, which she has said will be her 100th book!) Martha Stewart's Cake Perfection will be published on October 13th and Martha Stewart's Very Good Things will be out on January 5, 2021. I'm looking forward to both of these. Below are the cover images with a synopsis from the publisher. You can pre-order both now where ever you buy books online!

Inside these pages Martha shares all her best good things - the original life hacks for the home - to make your life easier, more fun, more delicious, and more efficient. These practical tricks cover all areas of Martha's domestic expertise, including cooking, crafting, gardening, organizing, entertaining, and more. From clever ways to solve common problems (use lip balm to lubricate a stuck zipper) to time-saving tricks (label window screens to avoid confusion when they come down for cleaning) to stress reducers (color-code kids' bathroom gear to make mornings less hectic), every one of these ideas will make you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?" Also included are ways to use what you have (infuse vinegar with herb blossoms), streamline your stuff (use just a few handy tools for many different purposes), or just make life a little more luxurious (serve party snacks in pretty decanters). Whether functional, delightful, or a little bit of both, these are the details that enliven and inspire every day - that's a good thing!
