Time for your weekly(ish) book covers 🙂

I have followed Oscar the Bionic Cats’ journey and it is truly inspirational. I haven’t read the book but I’m sure his willingness to just get on with life will shine through like it has elsewhere.

and equally great covers & titles too! Choose from titles like Buffalo Cake and Indian Pudding or The Well-Kept Kitchen. Now… how to get my local library to stock them…

Booky books

* Maude: the Not-so-noticeable Shrimpton by Lauren Child

* How to be Danish by Patrick Kingsley

* The Fox’s Tale: The First Christmas by Nick Butterworth

* The Paris Wife by Paula McLain

If you are thinking of building your own house or pursuing a self sufficient lifestyle then Ben’s journey is an utterly inspiring one. Beautiful photographs and useful tips for all.

* The Rapture of the Nerds by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross

I have recently finished reading this book and, though mind watering, it is brilliantly written. If you enjoy reading William Gibson, Neal Stephenson or Bruce Sterling then will enjoy this novel too.

* Knit your own Zombie by Fiona Goble

Cute patterns for toy zombies that snap apart and reassemble in multiple ways. A kookie Christmas present perhaps?
