Ahh, winter vacation: a time to wear fleece PJs 24/7, eat cereal straight from the box, and catch up on our pleasure reading. First up is Nick Offerman's recent release, Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living ($16). We hear it's a clever compilation of stories from his days growing up in Illinois, hours spent in his woodworking shed, and life in theater and television. Offerman may not actually be Ron Swanson, but the man has just as many pithy life lessons to share with his audience.
