"All these books and not one 'inspirational'."
What a sad thing to overhear in the book aisle, don't you think? To have such a narrow definition of "inspiration" is very nearly sinful, imho.
For myself, I managed a small haul from the 80%-off sale on books (salvaged Borders inventory) at a local discount store:
Knitting by Anne Bartlett
Inca Trail: Cusco & MachuPucchu by Richard Danbury
Climbing the mango trees by Madhur Jaffrey
Lamb: the gospel according to Biff, Christ's childhood pal by Christopher Moore
Wild Meat & the Bully Burgers by Lois-Ann Yamanaka
The diaries of Adam & Eve by Mark Twain
River Midnight by Lilian Nattel
... for the sons:
Simple foods for the pack: more than 200 all-natural, trail-tested recipes by Axcell, Kath & Cooke
