The Eat-A-Bug Cookbook

Forget stocking your pantries with non-perishables and canned foods for the end times, we can find what we need to sustain us all around — and thanks to The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook: 40 Ways to Cook Crickets, Grasshoppers, Ants, Water Bugs, Spiders, Centipedes, and Their Kin ($13), we don't need to eat it in its natural state. With recipes like "Cream of Katydid Soup," "Curried Termite Stew," and "Cockroach a la King," you might even forget you're eating bugs long enough to swallow a few down. That is, at least, until you get a leg or two stuck in between your teeth.

  • Shed Nation

    If your basement workshop isn't cutting it, or your garage is too cluttered to even focus on a project, it might be time for a shed. While you can buy a number of unoriginal, pre-fab jobs, wouldn't it be cooler to build one yourself? The handy guys at Popular Mechanics think so, and that's why they published Shed Nation. This book contains plans and guides for building an assortment of sheds for different purposes. Whether you want to build a small place to hold your tools, something with a tractor bay, a garden shed, or a full-on greenhouse, they've got you covered.

  • Power Moves

    For those who've followed the rise of Twitter-sensation @DadBoner, news of the forthcoming book Power Moves ($13) comes as no surprise. For those not familiar with Karl Welzein, President and CEO of Bad Boy City, USA, he's a guy who's fed up — with work, his wife Anne, his kids, his roommate Dave — but he still manages to live the all-freedom lifestyle (24/7/365, open on Sundays). This epic midlife crisis celebraish story plays out episodically in 140 characters at a time, detailing Karl's exploits and screw-ups, from top shelf margs at 'Bees to falling asleep on the crapper at work. We're not sure how it'll translate to the printed page, but we can't wait to find out.
