The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Re-reviews: Books


5 starsMycelium Running - This is still one of the most fascinating books I've read this year.  Although my morel cultivation didn't work out, I'm going to keep experimenting.

5 starsEdible Forest Gardens, volume 2 - I'm still incorporating this book's information into our gardening lives and I rank it right up there with Mycelium Running.  That reminds, I wanted to order the first volume in the set from interlibrary loan....

4 starsThe Backyard Beekeeper - I pored over this book for weeks when we started out with our bees, and I still dip back into it.  A keeper.

4 starsThe 4-Hour Work Week - Some books you love at the time, then forget about.  This book was the opposite.  At first, I wasn't so sure that I liked it, but I kept coming back to its advice as we developed our microbusiness.  Now I'm about due to re-read it.

3.5 starsThe Good Life - Bits of this book keep popping back into my head, though it's not one I'd feel the need to own.

3 starsLetters from the Hive - A fun book, but I passed it on and didn't miss it.

3 starsFull Moon Feast - Falls into the Letters from the Hive category.  A good book to check out of the library.

3 starsThe Ultimate Cheapskate - I enjoyed this book at the time, but I honestly can't say I remember much about it.
