Jennie Grant is your average 40-something mother with a bungalow in Seattle's leafy Madrona neighborhood, a happy middle-school child, a tolerant husband, and a Pug named Eddie. She also happens to keep chickens and two goats, Snowflake and Eloise, and is regionally known as the passionate founder behind the Goat Justice League.
Since Grant began keeping goats several years ago, she has learned firsthand the remarkable benefits and beauty of keeping goats, how much healthier and easier to maintain a yard with goats can be, the tolerance levels of neighbors, the health benefits of non-industrial foods, and how interacting with goats inspires a connection to nature. City Goats: The Goat Justice League's Guide to Urban Goat Keeping is her step-by-step guide on raising a pair of dairy goats in your urban or suburban backyard, from city zoning and selecting goats to setting up your yard, building a shed, feeding and caring, kidding, and milking.
Practical and at times comical (just like a goat!), connected both to nature and city, and slightly rebellious- City Goats: The Goat Justice League's Guide to Urban Goat Keeping is a book for gardeners, people committed to eating locally, and anyone who has ever pondered joining the backyard goat revolution.

WHAT MAKES A HOME BOTH SMART AND BEAUTIFUL?
Vern Yip is one of the most beloved and recognizable interior designers in America. Over the course of his near-decade at HGTV, he has counseled thousands of people on beautifying their homes on limited budgets. Through his shows, as well as in his regular column “Learn from Vern” in HGTV Magazine, he has become a trusted advisor for people wanting to create functional and beautiful living spaces.
In his debut design book, Vern introduces his “design by the numbers” approach, revealing the optimal measurements that are integral to making a room feel “right.” For example: where to place sofas in relation to coffee tables, how high or low to hang artwork, and how large a living room rug should be. Discovering these simple standards will help every reader bring flow and balance to a home, and give them confidence to develop a personal aesthetic. Every chapter will offer expansive images of Vern’s three homes and show how he’s used these principles to achieve everyday harmony and comfort. Whether it’s a laid-back Florida cottage, a small Manhattan apartment, or a traditional family home in Atlanta, Vern’s key design principles will make any house a true home.
