Recommended Reading List Updated for Spring 2011

It's Spring, and for most of us (at least up here in the north country of Minnesota), that means a raging, uncontrollable urge to be outside of the house. Reading books? A not-so-close second. Still, there are lots of good new titles out there, and some of 'em might even assist you in your outdoorsy endeavors. We've updated our Recommended Reading page for Spring 2011; here are some excerpts ...

Square Foot Gardening

Grow more in less space! Ok, to be fair, I'd be happy growing anything in any space, but this is something to aspire to.

At Home: A Short History of Private Life

I'm currently reading Bryson's book about black holes and exploding stars. I'm sure his history of domesticity is at least as interesting.

Treehouses & Playhouses You Can Actually Build

To some degree, having instructions for building a treehouse seems oxymoronic; on the other hand ... AWESOME!

I've just started reading Bill Bryson's "At Home" and it's such a wonderful read! Then again, I'm yet to find a book of his that I haven't enjoyed.
