We're guessing you haven't recently considered getting into beekeeping as your new pastime. Nevertheless, The Beekeeper's Bible ($35) is a fascinating read. It's filled with the history of bees and apiculture, honey-based recipes, and practical advice on harvesting the golden sweetener. You may not end up donning a beekeeper's veil when you finish reading, but you'll certainly have a new appreciation for the busy worker bee.
