Tokyo under grass
Me, I'm not that fond of so much lawn, if critters aren't eating it. I'd like to see half that much lawn, a whole lot of edible landscape, and perhaps native plants to attract wildlife -- but I'm a bit of a nutcase.
I collect natural history, environmental, and geography books, almost compulsively. I look for used versions where I can (to save paper) but also appreciate that many of these books come out in runs of a few thousand copies, and aren't profit-makers for the publishing companies, so when they come out new, I buy them while they're new. If you like Geographile and want to let me know, please either comment on my posts, or visit my Powell's wishlist to feed my book collection. You might find books you like there, too.
