$3 Mystery Books in the Maker Shed

Maker News

We’re having a slight issue in the Maker Shed. It seems that we have too many books and we need to get them out of the way. Rather than continue tripping over them, throwing them at each other, and using them for broom hockey pucks, we’ve decided to sell them as Mystery Books for just $3.00 a piece. Yes, really. For just $3.00 one of our warehouse ninjas will randomly pick a book from the hundreds we’ve accumulated over the years and ship it to you. The list prices on these books vary from $12-ish to $40-ish dollars so no matter what you get, it’ll be a great deal! There is no limit to how many you order, so feel free to stock up your local hackerspace. What will you get? A book with some words and maybe a picture. Other than that, I haven’t a clue.
