An Interesting Variety of Tastes

Our donors are amazing. Just when we think we've had books from every subject donated, we discover something in the bin that is from a subject area most of us have never thought about! This far reaching range of interests in our donation area accrues to the benefit of the highly intelligent community of Greater Reston. I'm not just flattering you -- look at what we have available on Amazon1 this week!

400 Sauces: Dips, Dressings, Salsas, Jams, Jellies & Pickles was published in 2007. This is a great addition to any cook's kitchen. With people cutting their grocery  budgets wherever possible, a good sauce can enliven a meal that would be otherwise so-so. This is $13.25 on Amazon1.

Digital Portraiture Basics Level 1 and Level 2 - Each of these books have an accompanying DVD. Choose one or both to turn your good photos into professional work and perhaps, sideline income. EACH book/DVD is $18.00 on Amazon1. But if you're a current local Friend and you want both of them, e-mail us and let's talk!

Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences -- This is quality control for Science Fair projects on steroids.  The blogger sat on a jury last summer where DNA evidence was at issue. Listening to the FBI agent describe the details associated with ensuring integrity of the process was tedious, but reflected the care and attention that must be applied to scientific measurement.  Within the field, this book gets high marks.  Our copy appears to not have been used, and the disk is sealed. It is $65.00 on Amazon1.

So, something for everyone today. Have a great weekend!
