How To Sell Your Car for More Than It’s Worth
Not a bad book for the times. The advice is pretty basic and sensible from what I can see. Advice on cleaning, detailing and minor repairs is probably still relevant but selling cars on your own is quite different with the advent of the Internet. I kept thinking that no amount of help from this book would be able to get you anything on some of the those spectacular examples of automotive design, such as the AMC Pacer, Chevy Vega and the Ford Pinto. One of my pals from college had a “lovely” Ford Pinto that was on its last legs and she insisted it was not going to explode. I think this particular car died sometime around 1983 and is probably a hunk of rust in a landfill in central Illinois.
PS. This led to a discussion of the worst cars at my house and I stumbled on this Time Magazine article from 2007 if you have a need to relive some of the more awful moments in auto history.

Macrame Open House
My new collection responsibilities include crafting, so naturally I am running into tons of titles featuring some of this lovely crap, I mean stuff. Macrame books have been a staple at ALB and this book fits right in to our growing archive of macrame. My particular favorite of this book is featured in the last picture below. Who wouldn’t want a patriotic themed wall hanging of a Ewok-looking Uncle Sam? It also might be a cat face. I’m not sure. (Special Note: I am well aware of the fact that Return of the Jedi was not released until 1983, so we can assume the crafter was NOT going for a Star Wars theme.)
May the crafting force be with you,
