A book is something you can always fall back on. No matter what is going on in the world, you can always count on a book to be there and perform the same quality function. If the power is out or your computer has crashed, the trusty stack of books you’ve collected will still be there for entertainment and reference.
As a teen I’d rather get lost in good story for hours than hangout with friends. I’d ask for books and Barnes & Noble gift cards for birthday presents. My family thought I was crazy but I say I had a good imagination.
I still love to read and do so every chance I get. But rather than asking for gift cards for birthdays I now use a book trading website which you can read about in Save a Tree, Trade and Get Books for Free. It’s a great site and has saved me a good chunk of money on books. I highly recommend you check it out, especially if you have a giant stack of books you never plan on reading again.
I’ve put together quite a collection of books over the years and will be sharing some of my favorites with you. If sustainable living is what you’re after, take a look at my list of
Everyday Project Books. Here you find reference books for gardening, cooking and everyday homestead living projects. I’ll be posting each project and recipe I try.
