Readymade Home Furniture takes off the shelf items found at any big box home improvement store and repurposes them into practical items for your home.
While some of the projects are simple like message boards and planters, others are complex like club chairs and closet home offices. There are 23 projects within these pages so at least one will catch your eye. However, remember that Readymade Home Furniture is sponsored by tool manufacturer Black & Decker. None of these projects are for amateurs but more for intermediately skilled home diyers who want to save some time. If you are one of those, you should check out the book for creative ideas and time-saving tips. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars!

Large mixed bag of comic short stories all with the theme of cheap space travel fill FTL Y’All.
There are 21 stories within this 327-page book. Most have the theme that Earth is a wasteland but outer space isn’t much better. Crowds, bureaucracy, and masses of people have ruined Earth and now are threatening to do the same for outer space. It is interesting to see so many different perspectives on the future. The artwork is also a great look at many different styles in one book.
FTL, Y’All is a good choice for sci-fi comic readers looking for something different. You may just find the next comics star! 3 stars.
