Champions: Great Figures in Canadian Sport
Submitter: A great primer on current Canadian Athletes, esp great with upcoming Olympics! I guess they just missed mentioning Gretzky, Sidney Crosby, Steve Nash, Justin Morneau, Jason Bay etc. etc. But Bobby Hull sure is hot baling hay!
Holly: Bobby Hull turns 71 this year. Wow! He looks so good for his age. Of course Bobby deserves to be in a book about Canadian athletes, but there have to be newer books on this topic that include more current contributors too. Upgrades are especially important in a Winter Olympics year.
Kahn and Pacific Domes
Submitter: This book is DomeBook 2. We must have had DomeBook 1 at some point, but all we have now is DomeBook 2. In Reference. Because it’s important to know where your next geodesic dome is coming from.
Holly: I’ve worked a public library reference desk for 12 years – most of that time at 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, with no off-desk time – and I have NEVER been asked for a blueprint to build a dome house. If dome houses were a popular thing in our area, I’d try to find something more current than this for sure. I am intrigued by the people in the picture below who live in this dome house, though. I’m also picturing the publishing executives in a meeting in 1970: “What we really need is ANOTHER book about dome houses!”
Camping in Comfort
A Guide To Modern Vacations
Yes, someone sent this to the bindery a long time ago so here is the lovely title page. I know that camping invokes a “yesteryear” feel, but c’mon, this title is a bit old for any useful information. I will be the first to admit that I don’t do camping anymore and my definition of “roughing it” is no room service. It is a wonderful stroll down memory lane, though.
Get a load of this modern family and all the cool camping gear! I believe that is an ATV folks circa 1971 though. Can’t say I have ever seen anything like it on the road or off!
