Apologies for the delay, my mind has been elsewhere.

Anyway, here is an eclectic batch of book covers from the new lot I downloaded today. I have actually read so of these so I can recommend them. As for the rest, the standard rules apply: I cannot guarantee a good read, only that I liked the cover artwork.

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.

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.

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