On the Bookshelf

If you didn’t know it, love to read.  I’m always reading something.  Lately I was able to score a couple of good finds at the library, which is somewhat unusual, since our branch is pretty small.  But yesterday I checked out City Farmer by Lorraine Johnson and Better Off by Eric Brende.

I’m really excited about both of these books.  I borrowed Better Off so I could read along with Crunchy Chicken‘s upcoming book club.  Before I could even start it, Rick had snatched it up and read half of it last night.  I grumbled about waiting my turn as I cracked open City Farmer.

What a surprise – I was laughing during the first paragraph and the first two chapters were just as entertaining.  The book looks like it’s going to be a great read.  I’ll keep you updated on both books as I finish them.

In the meantime, here are a few other good reads when it comes to food, sustainability and the future.


What are you reading?  What are your favorite books on gardening, urban homesteading and the like?

  1. We read “Better Off” several years ago when it first came out (the author is from our town) and it make a big impact on us. Hope you enjoy it!

    Cool Michelle – I hear he sells soap now?

  3. Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food is a great read! I wish more people would read up on these topics. Thanks for putting it out there!

      Read and Do! I wish people would read and be inspired to make changes (even small ones) in their own lives.
