So, for your New Year's consumption, here's the following ones (and they're annotated!)
- Rooms A series of short pieces about the hidden rooms that are within a city, but which the residents are largely unaware of. I think there's great story and novel seeds hidden within here.
- Aquabid It's the Ebay of the international fish trading world. Because really, what you want to do is buy a fish, when you're up, late at night browsing, and then get it shipped from Thailand. There are very stringent regulations on what to do if your fish arrives dead... This one is beautiful though.
- When a Washing Machine *really* doesn't fit Yarn Harlot is one of my guilty reading pleasures, not only because it's about knitting, but because she has the ability to make everyday life hilarious. This has pictures and saws.
