Happy Monday, book friends! I’ve been doing a great job of not acquiring new books while I try to make a dent in my TBR. However, that doesn’t mean the flow of books to our house has stopped entirely, because if I’ve taught my husband anything, it’s how to buy books.
We also went to the library branch that’s closest to us a few weeks ago and signed him up for a library card. The last time he had one was back in college, and it was very cute watching him get excited as he looked through the library catalog.
Mr. Your Book Friend is a practical reader more than anything. He likes to read nonfiction and learn new things. His goal is to one day run a small-scale farm, and right now he is reading every book he can find about small-scale market gardening.
This week, he grabbed another library book on the subject and also purchased a book. Whenever he does this, he excitedly tells me all the new things he’s learning during our two daily walks with Azula.
Since I haven’t gotten any new books this week, I thought I’d share the ones he recently acquired.
One of the things I’m most excited about is the prospect of growing our own grain some day, so I was thrilled to see him grab this book on grain. I bake a lot of bread, and the thought of being able to mill our own flour is high on my list of reasons I’d be okay moving out to the country… just as soon as I learn to make my own lattes.
Personally, I mainly read self-care and baking books when I’m reading nonfiction. Most recently, I’m learning a lot about sourdough from Flour Power by Tara Jensen. Are there any subjects you enjoy learning about through reading?
