During my days off, I also went on a bit of a cleaning and organizing frenzy. (There might be some hormones involved in all this, but who am I to object that parts of my house that haven't seen the vacuum in ages are now breathing dust-free?)
In pulling together all the random books that had migrated to far corners of the house, I discovered 2 duplicates that I'd like to share.
First is Gale Grigg Hazen's Fantastic Fit for Every Body. Here's what the reviews say on Amazon (and look at the reviewers):
"Finally someone has written an in-depth fit book that is reader-friendly and reality-based with excellent photos of real people. If you read if from cover to cover, you will understand not only the concept of fit but also why you have experienced frustrations in the past."--Sandra Betzina
"At last, Fantastic Fit for Every Body reveals that fitting is every bit as creative, fun, and satisfying as sitting down at the sewing machine and sewing. This book is crammed with fitting solutions--many I've never seen in print--and each one has been tested on a real person. Fantastic Fit for Every Body not only makes fitting fun but also is full of ideas and inspiration."--Marcy Tilton
Do One Green Thing, is for those who are trying to green up their lives, but just can't tackle the commitment to do it all at once. Who can? The road to hell is paved with good intentions, but most of us don't get that far. This is a book for the ones who would at least like to make a good start.
This, from Amazon:
If you can only read and reference one green thing, make it this book: an easily comprehensible, clearly presented source for green living. Everything you need to know is right here at your fingertips. Unlike a lot of other overwhelming green guides on the market, this is green decision making in bite sized pieces.With chose it/lose it comparisons throughout, now it's simple to figure out it’s worth switching to a green detergent, what kind of plastic your sports bottle is made of, or which fish is safest to eat. Rather than spending time trying to figure out how best to go green, use this book and devote that time to making the difference.
If either of these strike you as interesting, please leave a comment and let me know. I'll pick names on Sunday for each book, and pop them in the mail next week.
