A couple weeks ago, we started a new section of the site called The Library. Like most libraries, it's filled with books, but ours are virtual, and they're all recommended by our teachers about the topics they teach.
Here are a few of our favorites to get you started this summer:
The Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving by Ellie Topp and Margaret Howard
Why you should read it: Easy to follow instructions and a wide range of quirky and classic food preservation projects - from relishes to marmalades to pickles, ketchups and much more - make this the invaluable, must-have resource for home canners.

Oldman's Brave New World of Wine: Pleasure, Value, and Adventure Beyond Wine's Usual Suspects by Mark Oldman
Why you should read it: A book designed to help guide you outside of your comfort level with wine, without trying to bombard you with all the regions, vintages and facts that often make many wine books a drag.
suggested by Andrew Torrens
The Lexicographer's Dilemma by Jack Lynch
Why you should read it: Puts grammar in historical context. Standard English changes, folks, so loosen up a bit.
