A couple weekends back, the new library out near us had a bag sale. Five bucks, all the books you can stuff in a bag - my kind of fun! I love books. I love how they feel, and smell, and how you don't need electricity or a gadget. (I'm sure readers are cool, but I love real books!)
I couldn't go to the book sale. Why? Because I was working at the library that day. I was, literally, fifteen feet from the book sale, and unable to attend. Hubby, on the other hand, was available - so he went for me.
And boy, howdy, did he do something great! He got his bag, looked around, and found a box on the floor in a corner with some interesting books in it:
He promptly took them from the box, and put them into his bag. He also got me a couple of Tae Bo tapes (I know, sooo 1991, but they still make me sore!) and a couple of books for Little Bit.
Awesome score! What's really cool is that there was only one that I already own! One of the books he picked up was about family wealth and making sure it gets from generation to generation. He read through it, and then we listed it and the duplicate book on Amazon. Both sold, and more than paid for the rest of them. YAY!
So...if you need me for anything, I'll be on the couch or out at the picnic table with my reading glasses and a book or two...or three!
And now, I need to know - what are your favorite, go-to books about small scale farming, homesteading, all that? Leave me a comment with the title and author, if you please!
