    Pocket Posh game books: Designy.

    PUZZAZZ: What a cool idea: the people behind Pocket Posh Game Books have taken those addictive puzzle books – Sudoku, crosswords, word searches and so on – and updated their cheesy supermarket checkout-stand covers with ultra-designy prints in a Chinoiserie vein, so you look like you’re reading some very sophisticated journal. $7.99 each at The Container Store; find locations here.

    BEAT: A-list producer Timbaland – the ace knob twiddler behind everyone from Missy Elliott to JT -- comes to J&R tonight for an exclusive performance to coincide with the release of his album “Shock Value 2”, out today on the Blackground Enterprises label ($14.99). He’ll be signing copies, too. 6-7PM, J&R, 23 Park Row, 212-238-9000.

    YUM-O: Speaking of signing, if there are any Rachael Ray fans on your list, Dame EVOO will be autographing her new cookbook “Rachael Ray's Book of Ten: More Than 300 Recipes to Cook Every Day” (Crown, $20) – a tome made up of top-ten lists of Ray’s favorite 30-minute meals -- at the Union Square Barnes & Noble tonight at 6PM. 33 East 17th Street; 212-253-0810.
