    I have some good books on ethnobotany and the history of food plants native to the Americas. (I highly recommend "The Dessert Smells Like Rain" by Gary Paul Nabhan). Also just starting an Iggy Pop biography as well.

    Funny, I thought you meant the end of the world more seriously and I immediately thought this:

    Not sure if I've said it here before, but I started reading this book back when I was in the college and I found it so cool that I deliberately stopped and put it on the shelf, with the idea that if I ever see that there's nothing sensible left to do or hope for, I'd at least know that there's still an amazing book waiting for me.

    50/50 really mate as world end.. books would be back too the top as pastimes probably ..plus farming for idiots would be on loan all the time but yes just gave me the imagine of the dude from the time machine when he goes to the library and grabs some books and they turn to dust in his hands nooooooo



    but when goes back to change it love the book he grabs of his shelves to start the world again

    Looks interesting!
    Coincidentally Iím about to start


    and Iím fascinated by local distinctiveness, those often unnoticed details that are unique to a particular area. Think field gate designs, brick laying patterns (Ďbondsí)

    This book, and Common Ground, the group behind it, are inspiring
