 h1. Dear readers,

 Here are four related links for your end-of-the-year consideration:
 First, in an opinion piece from a representative of a hunger-relief organization, here's a reminder that many hungry Americans need extra help this holiday season.

 Second, you can help feed others just by making a purchase. There's more than a week left in our effort to raise money for Feeding America by donating all of our commissions from Amazon or Powell's Books during the month of December. 

 Third, need book ideas? We've gathered some of our favorite cookbooks to inspire you.

 And fourth — speaking of cookbooks — the year's final Cookbook Friday is a huge giveaway — Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything, plus 11 other cookbooks published by Wiley. 

 From each of us, to each of you, here's to restful, peaceful, and — yes —  delicious holidays. 
 Kim Carlson
 Editorial Director
