What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? December 2012 edition [OLD]

This promises to be a banner holiday season for us devoté(e)s of the genre...the NYT lists feature several that I want (and quite a few I have already, some of the more interesting ones in the supplementary list).
In addition, the Nancy Baggett "Simply Sensational Cookies" is well worth the baker's attention.
I live in fear of the best British books lists coming out.
What's on your list???
Michael Symon's "Carnivore," Julia's "Kitchen Wisdom" and the NY Times' Julia Moskin's "Cookfight" are all on my list for SantaSpouse to pick from. I am especially looking forward to Cookfight, because the original challenge this book is based on was detailed in the Times a couple of years ago, and was such a great read.
Oh, and "How to Eat." which somehow never gets purchased for poor, pitiful moi. Maybe this year. :)
VINTAGE CAKES has just gone in my Amazon shopping cart. Even though I've given up sweets for the most part, cakes have always been the thing I've most liked to make.
And then there's TART IT UP! (tarts being the thing I've liked to make most after cakes).
Thank you, buttertart (maybe you like making tarts, too).
I had pro ordered The Kimchi Cookbook by Lauryn Chun
It arrived this past week
The pictures are nice
The book is divided
cooking with kimchee
some recipes seemed interesting
kimchee risotto, winter greeens with kimchee,oven baked backed ribs
Interesting link buttertart. I guess the NYT is really just listing the new-ish books of the season vs reviewing them. I do have Jamie Oliver's Great Britain but haven't even taken a good look at it yet. Ditto for Burma.
Susan Feniger’s Street Food is definitely a book I want to check out. I so enjoy her cooking and I love street food so this seems like a great combo.
