Homesteading Books List…Books You NEED on the Homestead — 8 Comments

  1. Our libraries sound very similar. However, my kids are older so now we have a lot more of the classics. But the resources books and farming books are pretty much the same! We have reading time very day. There is no sitting in front of the television for hours on end. Reading is so important in so many areas of our lives.

    • Just in the last two years I’ve been pushing MYSELF back into the classics and LOVING it! As much as I’ve read, there’s just SO MANY I haven’t. And I’m amazing (and a little horrified!) that kids pretty much don’t read any of the good stuff in school. Our kids will read some in private school, but even then it’s a tiny, tiny bit compared to how much is out there. If they don’t read it at home, they won’t get it–and that would be a crime!

  2. love your list – pinned it to our group board! and I ‘m posting it on the 5 days Series fb page too!

  3. My summer reading list just got longer! You shared some wonderful resources. Looking forward to checking them out. Thanks!
    Oh, and that view of the library from beauty and the beast? maybe that’s what heaven will be like :D?

    • Hope you enjoy them! We have stack of books we’re reading, using, and trying to find time for all over our house!

      And I’m so glad I’m not the only one on the library scene. My husband laughs because it’s certainly not HIM, but he knows it’s totally ME.

  4. I am excited by your series. I saw that same Beauty and the Beast meme and I agreed. I would much rather the library! I am so thankful that my hubby loves to read as much as I do! 🙂

    • When he opened the curtains on all those shelves and shelves of books, my heart just swooned! 🙂 My husband isn’t a reader, but honestly it’s probably a good thing. We don’t have enough bookshelves for me–let alone TWO book-crazy folks!
