I love this thread! So many goodies for 2013. (As if there weren't enough cookbooks I wish to get among those that are already out...)
The one I will surely get is "Whole-Grain Vegan Baking". Even before I was vegan I used to wish for more whole-grain baking recipes. I may wait for a few people to review it, though, in case it's not good...

Book depository doesn't have Isa listed yet but I saw these which I'm looking forward to hearing more about as the time gets closer to release.

Cheers to Vegan Sweets!: Drink-Inspired Vegan Desserts - From the Cafe to the Cocktail Lounge, Turn Your Sweet Sips Into Even Better Bites! By Kelly Peloza
http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Cheers- ... 1592335688

Vegan Fusion: 125 Comfort Food Classics, Reinvented with an Ethnic Twist! By Joni Marie Newman
http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Vegan-F ... 1592335800

I like these authors other works, and I can't really say no to desserts or comfort food. Well I can, but not to books about them, food fantasy's while I eat something better for me from Appetite for Reduction.

OOh pre-ordered Isa's! It's very rare that the preorder price for Canada is lower than the American one and it's only 2 percent higher than I would have gotten at work. (HAH!).

My argument for getting baking(ie: cakes etc) only, is that you never know when you'll need one. Seriously. Birthdays are always abundant, you might break up with someone, PMS hits, whatever. It's good to always be armed with something. Also I find some people have different twists on old favorites, some might use margarine vs. coconut oil vs. nothing, and it's good to have it for those who have allergins.

(my world: Im vegan, best friend is soy-allergic the other one is cashew/walnut allergic. cooking for them every week= FUN)

Ouch. I always feel so sorry for people with food allergies, especially products like soy and gluten that are found everywhere. And cooking for them on a regular basis cannot be much fun, either.

Actually, it's fun, because it tests my cooking skills, and i can learn what to make soy free and figure out what to do/not to do. (ie: earth balance soy free butter is not "soy free" enough for her - something i tease her about all the time). but we've figured out how to use coconut oil instead. sometimes it totally works, sometimes not. and pecans sub beautifully - but we've yet to figure out how to make things as a cashew subsitute.

if it were me though, i'd seriously suffer, because i wouldn't give it up.

crepe. Amazon changed their shipping parameters, even if you did "send packages as few as possible" they had a tendency to send things when they released.... now they lumped everything together..

So i won't be getting ANY cookbooks until September/October. :(

Can't you edit your orders into $25 batches?

I have never thought about searching for pre-release books and now that I have done it, my wishlist has pretty much quadrupled!
I will most certainly be buying Isa Does It, or perhaps getting as a birthday present since I'm an October birthday too (11th, so just in time for it to get delivered!). I also really want the Whole Grain baking book because I love Celine and buy all her books.

In my searching, I also came across this which made me squeal with delight:
The Veggie Lovers Sriracha Cookbook

they already are. it's the release dates. (and some of my dates were when they were like at 40% off, so cancelling the order would doubly suck).

That's the one I have, the measurements are all different too- by weight (in grams, of course!) rather than cups.

the formatting is also different, it doesn't have any pictures, and it British-izes all of the little Isa idiosyncrasies we all know and love. i hate when they "translate" American cookbooks like that.

what i can remember offhand from flipping through a UK copy: they're sandwiches instead of sammiches (like that's too difficult for non-Americans to figure out), she talks about her Mum instead of her Mom, etc. here's a link to the UK edition with a look-inside feature if you want to investigate further.

I really didn't like that UK/Aus version of Vegan with a Vengeance. Binding was crepe, formatting was godawful, and it was just confusing. I wonder if the publisher just used common weights, rather than ingredients being weighed out, too (which is pretty standard but not reliable across the world)

I doubt the editor would take the trouble of being very accurate going from volumes to weights. So the original version of a cookbook is probably always most reliable.

It makes me think of British fantasy author Terry Pratchett, whose books have British and American editions. This was his answer to complaints about the American editions of his books:
"It's not Brits who think American readers are a bunch of whinging morons with the geo-social understanding of a wire coathanger, it's American editors."
That made me laugh when I first read it.
