12 Travel Books for Christmas: Number Ten

Merry Christmas, just a little bit early!  My gift to you this holiday season is a series of 12 book suggestions to help make your shopping a little easier (for your friends or for yourself).  Read about how this started here .
12 Travel Books for Christmas
Today's book recommendation is from a fellow Italy-lover.  I love her blog, Why Go Italy .  Add it to your regular reading!
Recommended by: Italylogue   who says, "It's not mine, but it's a friend's book, and it just came out."  The author, Karen Landes, tells me, "I haven't done twitter yet, but it looks like I might have to start! Maybe after the holidays. ;)"  We say, join us, Karen!  
In Etna's Shadow: culinary adventures from Eastern Sicily by Karen Landes
Summary: "'In Etna's Shadow: Culinary Adventures from Eastern Sicily' will delight foodies and armchair-travelers alike. It's a travel journal with a culinary bent. Evocative, full-color photographs transport you from the slopes of Europe's tallest volcano, Mount Etna, to the fertile la Piana di Catania(Plain of Catania) below. The author takes you along on culinary adventures detailing everything from gelsi to gelato and carciofi to cassata while also presenting practical information on market days and sagre listings within the Province of Catania.  -- excerpted from  
So, now your Twitter list continues to grow. And you have a growing list of twelve book suggestions!  Merry merry!

Don't forget today's the last day to enter the Christmas Giveaway !  You'll find the instructions here !

Glad you used my book suggestion, Angela - though it looks like the link to my Twitter profile is broken. Just FYI. :)
