1. I picked up Barnheart in Manchester, VT on a trip we recently made to Northshire Bookstore. I had just read this author’s book on keeping chickens, and her memoir seemed like a story I could relate to. And relate I did! Turns out, the author lives on her farm in the next county. 2. In honor of National Poetry Month, I picked up one of my favorite books of poetry. 3. Full of useful tips, I’ve been perusing Making It for advice on saving money, using less, and becoming more self-sufficient at home. 4. This is one of the most important books I’ve read recently. A great read about the impact of nature and spending time outdoors on the psychological and emotional health of children. I’m not quite done with it yet but I’m so glad I stumbled upon it.
