Undomestic Goddess
Sophie Kinsella

From Publishers Weekly
Samantha Sweeting, the 29-year-old heroine of Kinsella's latest confection (after Shopaholic Sister), is on the verge of partnership at the prestigious London law firm Carter Spink—the Holy Grail of her entire workaholic life. But when she finds she has made a terrible, costly mistake just before the partnership decision, she's terrified of being fired. In a fog, she stumbles out of the building and onto the nearest train, which drops her in the countryside, where she wanders to a stately home. The nouveau riche lady of the house mistakes her for the new housekeeper—and Samantha is too astonished to correct her.

Organizing from the inside Out: The Foolproof System for Organizing Your Home, Your Office and Your Life
Julie Morgenstern
0805075895
January 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
It's about time! Julie Morgenstern has written an organizing book that covers a new way of looking at the task of organizing effectively without labeling or blaming the person behind the lack of organization. Rather, she says, people who don't organize just never learned how to organize, through no fault of their own--after all, it's not a skill that's taught in school. That said, she gets down to work helping you figure out an organizing system that will really work for you, not a system based on cookie-cutter filing concepts or special storage units.

Morgenstern's "from the inside out" system begins by laying out the possible reasons for a failure of organization: technical errors (like having a complex organizing system that breaks down), external realities (like not enough space for your belongings), and psychological...

Airstream Living
Bruce Littlefield

October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
The Airstream story is the Wally Byam story, for if his wife, Stella, hadn't "refused to go camping without a kitchen," the world might never have known the aerodynamic silver trailer that screams art moderne. Though a few introductory pages suffice for Byam's personal story, his influence is felt throughout this colorful appreciation of the perfectly retro home-on-wheels, and his innovations are lauded. Littlefield and Brown sought out restored, remodeled, and reconditioned examples of the various models of Airstream that appeared over the years and photographed them and their owners in scenic repose. Two constants are the owners' pride in their trailers and their prizes' shiny silver sheathing (the few departures from silver exteriors are noted in passing). There are even Airstream clubs that tour exotic locales...
