cool tools by kevin kelly - a book review
Here's a secret about me you may not know. I love reading catalogs, all types of catalogs, it can even be a catalog for things I would never plan to buy (for example: gardening tools when I live in a tiny DC apartment) I still will read it. By my bedside is the Unline catalog, you get the idea. 

So when Kevin Kelly (senior Maverick of Wired Magazine) asked me if I would like to check out and review his new book Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities I said "Yes Please!" (full disclosure: I was given a complimentary copy of Kevin's book to review but received no other compensation).
A few weeks later it arrived at my apartment, I couldn't wait to get it out of the package and settle down with a cup of hot chocolate to enjoy a good read through. It's a heavy book filled with everything under the sun, I was in catalog reading heaven! 

Kevin along with his contributors have created product review descriptions next to each item read like a friend telling you why they love something and how useful it is, it's really such a fun read! My copy of this book is now filled to the brim with Post its! 

If you are like me and love reading catalogs, getting tips about hard to find items, or just want a fabulous conversation coffee table book check out Kevin's book here on Amazon, or visit the Cool Tools blog here!
