I’m a reader. I’m the daughter of a reader. My addiction to books is genetic. In our personal library, we have thousands of volumes of carefully selected books. I am constantly working to increase the quality of our library, we value quality, not just quantity. I work had to eliminate the “twaddle”. What is twaddle? It is “trivial or foolish speech or writing; nonsense”. Many of today’s “modern” literature is twaddle. I cast a critical eye toward books. If they don’t meet our standards for quality, they are set aside to giveaway to the used book sale. This applies to both fiction and non-fiction.
For the month of November, I will share my favorite books about agriculture. My farming bookshelf is by no means complete, I’m always looking to add quality volumes, but I will share my favorites….so far. These books will range from children’s books to production and management strategies to philosophy. Farmers and non-farmers alike, you’ll find these books to inspire and encourage you in your food journey.
The Agriculture Book List is a part of 30 Days of Agriculture, coordinated by Holly Spangler. Follow me (and oh-so-many others) as we blog each and every day in November on a wide range of agriculture topics. The fun starts on Saturday, November 1st. And, did I mention there will be giveaways?? I didn’t??!! Well, it’s your lucky day…or should I say days. I’ll be giving away some of the books I profile throughout the month. If you comment on a post, you are entered to win. The more posts you comment on, the better your chances of winning!
See you Saturday!!
