Each Tuesday, we love to wish our books a very happy #BookBday. Today is extra special because we've got the treats to back it up! Anne is entering a baking competition at work next week and decided to do a test run of her Halloween desserts: Pumpkin Granola Truffles and Halloweeny Boo Bites. We hope you'll enjoy them too–they're very easy to make and you don't even have to turn on your oven! Read on for recipes with pictures!

Happy Valentine's Day, lovers!

Emily from Academic Marketing FINALLY put out some Nestle Valentine's Day Butterfinger Hearts and now I feel fully prepared to sincerely wish you the best of Valentine's Days!

Whether you're celebrating with your friends, family, significant others, or your favorite dog, Netflix, and a cake for one, we want it to be the best.

Today is the perfect day to enter THE LOVER'S DICTIONARY creative definition contest since your brain is already all mushy with caramel and pink champagne (what do you mean it's only 1 o'clock?!). Snark, sap, and sass are all welcome.

The Word of the Day: Chocolate

The Word of the Day: Chocolate

Yesterday, the word of the day was "teens." If you didn't get a chance to skim the 2012 teen title previews we posted, check them out under the Books for Teens section up on the link bar, snuggled between Debuts and About Us. 

Today, we've decided that the word of the day is: "chocolate." Not that we need an excuse to celebrate, but apparently it's Chocolate Week and we are fully in support of this holiday.

I put together a sampler plate of delicious book recommendations just for you:

SMALL-BATCH BAKING FOR CHOCOLATE LOVERS is the perfect cookbook to whip out for a full week's worth of tasty sampling treats that you won't feel the need to share.

If you're not a baker, don't panic! You can still celebrate with the best of them. Just swing by your favorite local bakery and pick up a box of chocolate glazed donuts. If you like a little danger with your confections, grab the latest installment in the Donut Shop Mysteries series. Or, if you like your chocolate on the spicy side, grab a copy of SOME LIKE IT HOT and settle in for a night with pastry chef Danny Lunden, who couldn't be sweeter if you dipped him in chocolate fondue.
