We don't care what the subject is, you can't go wrong with a book that contains banner "Chapter 1: Coconuts". It's particularly pleasurable as the lead chapter in Amy Sedaris' forthcoming book, Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People ($17 on preorder). Admittedly, you're probably going to spend more time laughing at Sedaris' wacky photo spreads and craft ideas than you will actually making a coconut bra, but a good giggle's just as great as kitschy homemade decor (and it's a lot easier, too!).
