Review:


On Everyday Bicycling:
"Blue takes cycling and makes it digestible to cyclists and would-be's in a friendly, laid-back tone. Absent of any authoritarian voice, this is the book I wish I had years ago." Urban Velo

"What anyone who wants to start enjoying bicycle transportation can use: a collection of hard-won wisdom, delivered by someone who really cares." Sarah Goodyear, The Atlantic Cities

About Make Your Place:
"I recommend using Make Your Place: Affordable, Sustainable Nesting Skills by Raleigh Briggs as one of your go-to references. This hand-illustrated book offers simple, practical skills that anyone can learn and apply to everyday life ... One of the features I love most about this book is its conversational and witty tone. Briggs is never condescending and instead inspires the reader to better his or her life with his simple tutorials. Briggs also urges readers to be safe and offers helpful advice for every step of the way. Even though some of the recipes call for uncommon ingredients, I constantly refer to this book when I’m looking for natural and sustainable answers for my home." Natural Home Magazine

"There are about 100 levels of cool here. As someone who makes her own deodorant and underwear, I feel a urge to stalk this woman." Angry Chicken

"I went online and ordered all the necessary ingredients and equipment: funnels, plastic squeeze bottles, spray bottles, vinegar, borax, castille soap, baking soda, and oils of peppermint, tea tree, lavender, and eucalyptus. Most of the ingredients were inexpensive, except the oils, which were quite costly. Fortunately, the recipes called for just a few drops of the fragrant oils. A little goes a very long way. I estimate that home-made cleaning solutions cost about half as much as store bought products." Boing Boing

About Homesweet Homegrown:
"Homesweet Homegrown is an extremely helpful handbook that reads like a primer of lessons learned from garden-tending grandparents insightful, informative, and maybe most importantly, honest. (Not to mention, just reading the recipes toward the back of the book made my mouth water in anticipation of the upcoming harvest.) With this by your side and a bit of good weather, you’ll be enjoying the fruits of your labor soon enough." Alexa Fornoff, Assistant Editor, Readymade Magazine
