Fight the heat with 32 Unique Homemade Popsicle Recipes from Tree Hugging Family (from the traditional like "fudge pops" to the I'm-not-sure-my-kids-would-eat-that like "sweet potato pops"). Or work with the heat to make fruit leather on the dashboard of your car with this recipe from Bring on the Lloyds.

But if you can keep yourself awake, you might want to give one of the new books on my to-read list a try:
- Grist interviews the author of the new book Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture.
- Mindful Momma recommends The Big Green Cookbook.
- Everyone's talking about Vanessa Farquharson's new book Sleeping Naked Is Green.
