Has anyone here read any of Eric Sloane's books? Very good books for reference to "Americana". I particularly enjoy his book titled "A Reverence for Wood". Other's of his to read are "America", "Diary of an Early American Boy", "The Season's of America Past", and "A Museum of Early American Tools".
Like I said, alot of information on how early Americans lived, and what their world was like.
I only have time for educational reading, learning how to do things to expand my homesteading skills.
My new topic to research is goats. I'm ready to explore the possiblity of raising my own. I fear if I decide to do that I will need a book on fence building!
Now I know religion is not discussed here, but my most important how-to book to read is the Bible!
I have given up all my magazine subscriptions. I get everything off the internet like foums like this. Only books I have a manuals or how to books that I have had. Most how to questions I need I can get online. Save alot of money using the internet.
I'm a "How To" book junkie. While my husband reads a novel, I"m reading the latest info. from Countryside or online looking for more helpful resource material.
When I do take the time to do recreational reading it is usually Reader's Digest if I'm short for time. My favorite author is O.Henry. I have several volumes of his stories. I also enjoy the Stepanie Plum series by author Janet Evanovitch. My Bible is also on my favorites list.
