The Hands-On Home: A Seasonal Guide to Cooking, Preserving, & Natural Homekeeping by Erica Strauss

Seasonal recipes stand alongside year-round staples in this get-ideas-anytime natural homemaking guide. The Hands-On Home actually made me want to scrub the bathroom with one of the great-smelling homemade cleaning solutions.  fun projects for the beginning homemaker and the pro DIY-er, from simple foot scrubs and impossibly-fast tortillas to homemade castile soap and pressure-canned meals. There‚Äôs wisdom throughout for making the most of your supplies, including wide-ranging uses for vinegars, the pros and cons of canning versus freezing a summer fruit surplus, and clever ideas for recipe variations and substitutions. -Richael


Plotted: A Literary Atlas by Andrew DeGraff & Daniel Harmon

Let's start with the obvious: this book is cool. It's cool to see our favorite stories in visual form, and maps are always fascinating. And a book like this could be just cool. But, thankfully, DeGraff's Plotted is much more than just cool. The maps within this atlas are not mere representatives of the works they represent, but are representations in their own right. This is to say, they are not lifeless, obedient children. While they clearly love their parents, they also have something of their own to say and that makes them worth coming back to over and over. -Sam
