Well, we are in a dead tie. Each option has received exactly 12 votes. With three books total on the voting card, we can't simply do both options, so I are extending the voting by 24 hrs.
This extension is only for NEW votes, which will be added to the votes already made. If no more votes are made, I will toss a coin [a dollar coin if you are interested] and make the final decision.
Here are this month's options:
Claudia Roden THE NEW BOOK OF MIDDLE EASTERN FOOD
Claudia Roden ARABESQUE: A Taste of Morocco, Turkey, and Lebanon
Thomas Keller AD HOC @ HOME
VOTING: One Chowhound, one vote. You can cast your vote in the form of book title, author name, or option number but you MUST type your vote in ALL CAPITALS if you want it counted.
Voting will be open through TUESDAY AUGUST 24 at midnight EDT.
