I've been reading through a few different books of late. One is The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, the Cameo Classics edition, by Rudolf Erich Raspe. This old book houses the surrealistic and absurd tales of Baron Munchausen, which were later made into a movie.
Another interesting book to read has been From Vines to Wines, byJeff Cox. This books details the process of planting grapevines all the way to making your own wine. Definitely an interesting read, and possibly related to an upcoming project.
