When I decided to document my reading from 2015 I didn’t plan to do full on book reviews because that is a commitment and ummm not into adding more to my to do list. Nonetheless, I am willing to do something informal as it will help me journal and maybe someone else.
I recently read, The New American Homestead by John H. Tullock.
The book wasn’t horrible but it is not a must read, IMHO. I liked that he went into very commonly grown plants and gave each their due diligence. However, this is not the only book that provides this info so I would consult a different author. I think I just didn’t care for his writer’s voice. I notice I like books that automatically make me feel as if the author and I are in a conversation. I didn’t get that feel with this book. At times it was rather boring, but not so boring that I didn’t finish the book. I powered through and yes I learned a little bit, but nothing worth making me want to own it or recommend it. However, if your library has a copy it wouldn’t hurt to give it a skim.
