A totally useless publication, fortunately a very brief one. Consists of a few obvious suggestions, recycle your old jars etc! Duh

1.0 out of 5 stars Uninspiring and ridiculously brief 8 May 2013
By Shelli Meyers - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This title does not even have enough content to constitute a brochure, let alone a book – it is a list of just ten recycled upcycling ideas, each expounded upon by 1-3 sentences, and each given its own page (perhaps to make the end product seem longer?). Of course, at the whopping price of free, even ten fresh ideas would be nothing to complain about, but each of the ideas are either laughably obvious, uninspiringly general, redundant, or some combination thereof. For instance, anyone taking the time to download this title surely already washes and reuses glass jars (the topic of over one third of the numbered items), and the added suggestion that we can use them to "store things" is not particularly useful. The sole example in the item for repurposing old clothing is to turn a pair of jeans into cut off shorts! But my personal favorite is the assertion that there are a "million" ways to repurpose an old wooden pallet, such as adding arms and cushions to turn it into a couch or a chair (huh?). To add insult to injury, there are no photographs or illustrations, the formatting is wonky, and the grammar and punctuation are atrocious.

I applaud the self-publishing movement, and the altruism behind putting materials out into the Kindle world for free. But I can't support simply throwing together any old piece of trash and tossing it out there into the world; it serves no one at all, including the publisher, and makes actual quality publications that much harder to find.

And with that, this review is now likely longer than the entirety of the e-book in question.

Author cut and pasted 10 generic ideas off the internet. This isn't a book. It literally took me 2 minutes to read it.

By Mom of 5 - Published on Amazon.com

Are you kidding? There is not enough here to pass for a blog post let alone a book! Can you say illustrations? I can't even picture that bird feeder. I'd give it no stars if that were possible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Short, full of typos 10 May 2013
By A Catholic Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This booklet has so many typos... "[Poke] four homes..." instead of holes? Each 'chapter' is one paragraph or a run-on sentence pretending to be a paragraph. Then, a lack of commas so you have a hard time understanding what IS there... And finally, each idea is not even one complete idea. Good thing it was free - it wasn't even worth my time reading it!

Not really a book just 10 basic ideas. Didn't even have pictures to help visualize the ideas. So glad it was free
