I read. A lot. My personal library of farming and gardening books has over 150 print titles, with a bunch more on my phone.
And now I've found a cool way to recommend some of the best gardening books I've discovered over the years.
I discovered an on-line retailer that actually supports local, independent bookstores by sharing 10% of all sales.
They have raised over $5 Million in support of bookstores in many communities. Here's a blurb from their site:
"We believe that bookstores are essential to a healthy culture. They’re where authors can connect with readers, where we discover new writers, where children get hooked on the thrill of reading that can last a lifetime. They’re also anchors for our downtowns and communities".
I've curated a selection of the best gardening books on the Bookshop site:
In most cases, these are books I've either read or I'm familiar with the author from other books. And a couple I recommend just because they cover an important topic and fill a 'gap'.
Go here New Terra Farm Bookstore to see all of my favorites.
“Thanks to Bookshop, there is no reason to buy books on Amazon anymore.”
