Always on the quest to find more things to occupy my time or learn how to do something new I was elated to find this book. Quite honestly I think I already have enough interests to keep myself busy (now acting on it is another thing... I AM a recovering lazyholic), but you never know when you're neglecting the hobby of a lifetime. If you need MORE hobbies or a place to start check out this book. Aside from some of the usual suspects (knitting, scrap booking, soap making) what about taxidermy, urban animal husbandry, falconry or seed trading for instance. The world is your oyster so it seems. Buy it at Alibris and get started on your new life.
