"Waiting On" Wednesday: Friendship Bread
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Publication Date: April 19
In Avalon, Illinois, a woman and her young daughter return home to find a plate of Amish Friendship Bread along with a bag of starter on their doorstep. There’s no note, just a yellow sticky with the words, “I hope you enjoy it.” The instructions tell them to feed the starter over a 10-day period, then bake two loaves and share the remaining starter with three other people.
At the insistence of her five-year old daughter, Julia Evarts reluctantly follows the instructions. Soon, the bread and its starter are making their way through the town of Avalon, touching the lives of its residents in ways both comical and unexpected.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Sounds very unique! Great choice!
This kind of reminds me of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. Nice choice. Especially since I'm a sugar addict!
Oh this sounds so good, I am gonna ad this one to my list as well, might be a good lesson learned reading this book.
This really sounds cute. I like the cover too! It's making me hungry! :)
With my current addiction to anything paranormal it might be a while before I read this, but it looks like a beautiful book! Great pick! The cover makes me hungry!
That sounded like a very original novel. Thanks for sharing it :)
The cover is cute.
Avalon? connected with Arthur the King?
What a cool premise, it sound like a very lovely read. Great pick!
That sounds like an interesting pick :)
Sounds very interesting! Nice pick!
I stumbled across this blog almost by accident and have been inspired to take part, so much so that I actively went out to look for a book "to look forward to". I trawled the Amazon site for pre-releases and was absolutely thrilled to bits to find that the next Earth's Children book is due to be published this year. I love this series and have been waiting for about 10 years for book 5 to be published and if it wasn't for your blog then I wouldn't have known it was due out in a couple of months. THANK YOU!!!!!! I'm so excited now, can't wait for March!
I read about Friendship Bread somewhere. I think the cover is fabulous!This is definitely going on my list.
Sounds great!!! Just entered and now on my way to check out the other WoW's!!!
This sounds really awesome! I'll definitely have to remember this one.
I've been seeing this one mentioned a lot recently. Looks very tasty!
This one sounds really cute and sweet! I love the idea of Friendship Break. Awesome choice!
This sounds good. And the cover is cute. Great pick!
I used to love to actually make "Friendship Bread", remember once we had 8 or 10 "starter" batches on my counter because I kept not giving it away!
I not only like the sound of the book but this is one that can actually relate to, nice pick Jill!
This sounds like a great read!
Sounds interesting. I remember trying something like this (the friendship bread) years ago.
Adding this to my TBR list!
Ooooh I like your choice this week! It sounds like something I would enjoy :)
Sounds like a sweet story.
Sounds like a good book and I love the title.
This seems like a very interesting book. We received something similar to that a few years ago, but we didn't really follow it. It seems like a very interesting idea to write about. :)
I've actually been given Amish Friendship Bread before, it really is a remarkable experience when you think about how it starts out with one person and ends up touching so many people. I bet this is really great "slice of life" book. Thanks for sharing.
This sounds like a sweet book!
Baking and tales of spreading community...sounds wonderful.
Thanks for hosting as always, Jill.
This books looks like one my book club would like..great pick! Have a good week. We have snow here and it is 12 degree's out ..yikes!

Oh, my family have done the friendship bread song and dance. It's lots of fun-- and the bread is *delicious*, but super-hard to make. Awesome choice. :)
Your choice sounds really cute :)
OH I love amish friendship bread it is the best!!! Now I'm Hungry!!
Great pick! Looking forward to reading it!
interesting "waiting on" pick. although not usually something i would read.
Yummy, now I'm hungry, maybe I'll go make myself some toast!
My very first Waiting On Wednesday Is Up. Woo Hoo!
This sounds really interesting, and I'm hungry now.
This is a book that I am also looking forward to reading! I can't wait!
This book sounds like it will be a nice read. I haven't heard of it before now, but I'm putting it on my TBR list. It sounds like a cute book!
Thanks for hosting this meme!
That sounds like a cute novel =) Also I really love the idea of this feature- what a great way to spread the word about upcoming releases!
Great selection this week!
I love this summary - what a great way to meet people and make friends. I haven't heard about bread starter in a long time - or tasted it. Yummy!
Hi Jill and everyone! What a lovely surprise to stumble upon your blog and see such a nice mention of FRIENDSHIP BREAD. Thank you! The ARE's are out this week and my publisher is giving away copies (http://ballantine.atrandom.com) and there will also be a giveaway at the Friendship Bread Kitchen (currently parked on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/fbkitchen). I'd love to hear from any of you and wish you all the best in 2011!
author of FRIENDSHIP BREAD (Ballantine Books, April 2011)
What a great pick Jill. I've added this one to my list.
That looks really good! Great pick.
That one looks good! I'm waiting on "What Happened to Goodbye" by Sarah Dessen! (May 2011 - woot woot!)
Sounds like a good book! I think I'm going to enjoy being a part of this meme. Or go nuts that I can't possible ready everything. Unclear.
I think this time around my WoW will win the 'I've been waiting for this the longest' award... not one I particularly wanted to win, lol!
This one sounds like the type of book I'd really like. Great choise!
Great choice, Jill! I'm a day late here...but I linked up anyway.
Wow, this book sounds great. Also, when I moved, I had to give up my Amish friendship bread starter. I really wish I had another!
