Amundsen, Lucie - Locally Laid: How We Built a Plucky, Industry-changing Egg Farm–from Scratch [50,000 first printing, but I just don't think I can do any more of these back to the land, sustainable living, let's all grow our own food books.]

By one of the survivors of the plane crash in the Andes that was the subject of Piers Paul Read's bestselling book Alive. I thought Alive was one of the most fascinating books I've ever read, and I also read another survivor, Nando Parrado's, book Miracle in the Andes, so I'll be getting this one too.]

Walton, Bill - Back from the Dead [Evidently I don't pay enough attention to sports--evidently Walton is an "icon"? Here's the ad copy: "This inspiring memoir from sports and cultural icon Bill Walton recounts his devastating injuries and amazing recoveries, set in the context of his UCLA triumphs under John Wooden, his storied NBA career, and his affinity for music and the Grateful Dead."]
