Are you a fan of Reader’s Digest books and magazines?
When I see Reader’s Digest on a book, I know it’s going to be filled with great information that is easy to understand and gets right to the point. That is definitely true of the newly updated Complete Do It Yourself Manual from The Family Handyman.
The 528 page hardcover book contains a huge selection of instructions for repairs and home improvement projects. There are over 3,000 illustrations that make it easy for non-professionals to understand what needs to be done.
The manual includes some of the original projects, but has been updated to keep it relevant. There is an emphasis on using the best tools, supplies and technology for today to create long lasting improvements that are energy efficient, safe and functional for the way we live today.
This is an excellent resource guide to keep on hand for emergency repairs and fun projects around the house.

We bought a VERY old brick Victorian 3-flat (we live in one (biggest nicest) until and the rent from the other pay the mortgage…
The down side is that in this old relic of a building constantly EVERYTHING needs work, repairs, improvement and/or replacement.
