  • Eat Your Vegetables

    If you live alone, you know how tough it can be to eat the way you're supposed to. It's often easier to just run to the drive-through or whip up some microwavable garbage. Eat Your Vegetables: Bold Recipes for the Single Cook ($18) is here to help you get more veggies in your diet, especially when you're cooking for one. Written for vegetarians, flexitarians, and omnivores alike, this book has recipes like curried mushroom bean burgers, risotto with greens and zucchini, kimchi deviled eggs, and spinach enchiladas — so getting your daily-dose of veg never has to be boring again.

  • Practical Duct Tape Projects

    Duct tape may be the greatest fix-it-all invention in existence, but it's also a great material for constructing common, useful items from scratch. Practical Duct Tape Projects ($11) provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for making everything from a magic wallet, to a hammock. The book is divided into several sections — bags and totes, wallets, clothing, tech, home and furniture, and arts and crafts — with over thirty projects to keep you busy. And, since they now make duct tape in nearly every imaginable color, you won't need to sport a messenger bag in shiny silver.
