Watcha Reading this Summer?
I know its the end of July but I am starting to settle into a "slower" pace and trying to find some down time which I often have a problem doing. I ordered a couple of books off of Amazon last week to help me with the down time. I know alot of people are into the Kindell thing but I still like my books. Just thought I'd share some of things I am reading and maybe if your reading, you can share some good finds that your reading:)
A friend suggested this book to me. Its written by Temple Grandin, an autistic woman with a degree in animal science. It covers chapters on horses, dogs, cats, cows, pigs, and yes, chickens. So far, a very insightful read. Its a good book for reflection if you "own" pets or livestock.
This book is written by Angela Miller, a New York literary agent, who bought a farm in Vermont and started a a cheese-making business with dairy goats. And since my dream is to live in Vermont and I have LaMancha dairy goats........well, I thought this would be a good read and so far, I love it!
Now, did one honestly think I would not be reading a book on George Washington after I spent a whole week at Mount Vernone?? Actually, this book is a great read and really gives a whole different perspective on who Washington really was and how much he loved farming. It has been very inspirational for me:)
And since Walmart is busting out with back-to-school supplies ALREADY, this cartoon made me laugh esp. since I am reading the book about animals making us human and I hate the thought of having to go back to work:(
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer and do share a good book your reading!!!!!
