Read Any Good Books Lately?
The age-old question, “read any good books lately?” I love to read and learn as much as I can. My favorite topics to read are about God, faith, small-scale farming, permaculture, homesteading, gardening, raising chickens, food and related business books. There just isn’t enough time in a day to read everything I want to read and actually get the work done that has to be done in my home inspection business and on Savvy Organics Farm.
Like I said, I love to read. I usually read things with an idea or goal in mind. Sometimes books just provide some “head knowledge” that may be needed to accomplish a task or a goal. My true favorites are those books that inspire me to do things that I may not normally do, like start a small-scale organic farm, CSA and Market Garden. Whatever your interests are, get a good book about it. You never know what it might inspire you to accomplish.
Reading books about our favorite topics can entertain, inspire and guide us. Have you read any good books lately? If so, I hope you will share the titles with us in the comments. Below is a short list of some of the best books my wife and I have read recently. Enjoy!
