Birthday books for simple living

My lucky day

I was a little ill on my birthday this year, but I received an exciting selection of books. I’m sure that many of these will be invaluable for our coming adventure.

I always ask for books, and my family always apologise for only buying me ‘boring’ books but I can assure you that none of these books are boring to me in the slightest. I’m so grateful they’re willing to humour me.

You can expect reviews over the coming months. First on their readability, and then a follow up once I’ve put them through the real hands-on test.

You can look forward to:

  • Basic Butchering of Livestock and Game
  • Your Bread Oven – Building it and baking in it (I have another post coming soon with one of my goals – you’ll never guess what that might be)
  • Small-Scale Grain Raising (only considering the possibility right now, I’ve no idea if this is actually viable for us)
  • Crust and Crumb (expect lots of photos of bread experimentation here)
  • The Bread Baker’s Apprentice (as above)
  • Gaia’s Garden
  • The Encyclopedia of Country Living (most books that try to cover such a wide range of topics only touch the surface of each, but at a glance this looks really useful)

I’ll spare you Experimental Design with Applications in Marketing and Service Operations and I’m not sure this blog is the place for Dawkins either, but they’ll can help keep my mind active.
