I’ve had a long-standing, if not unsatisfying, affair with books. Basically it goes like this: I buy books, I start reading, I get a few chapters in and then stop reading. Wash, rinse, repeat. For years this has been been my lot in life. It’s not because I’m not reading books that are stimulating enough.

Mother’s Day is just a few days away and if you’re still looking for the perfect gift for Mom, Groupon is currently offering the Grow Camp Ultimate Vegetable Grower for just $259.99 (it lists for $399.99).
