Ad Hoc at Home Is Totally Sold Out Online

A hearty Merry Christmas to the good folks at Artisan Books, whose holiday bestseller Ad Hoc at Home sold maybe a little too well: Amazon's out of stock on the title, and doesn't expect to be back in stock until we're in the new year. Ditto for Barnes & Noble. Copies are available from third-party seller on Amazon for prices ranging as high as $183, but we have it on good authority that it's still on the shelves at brick-and-mortar B&Ns, Borderses, and independent bookstores for those willing to search them out. Who knew Thomas Keller would be the Tickle Me Elmo of 2009?

    If there ever was a cookbook that deserved to totally sell out, this would be it.

  2. terroiriste shows a number of independent booksellers selling it online at what it should cost. Support an independent bookshop AND don't go out in the rain - what more could you want?

    I saw a stack of them today at the Anthropologie at 5th Ave. and 16th St.
