Books are one of my favorite things in the world. I've pared down a lot through the moves but I still love having them. I love the way they feel and the way they look and the way they smell. I don't get the appeal of a Kindle at all. Folks can feel free to save trees by not using paper for stupid stuff like junk mail but lets not stop printing books!
My Amazon order came Saturday. One of the books was for Miss V- Performance Without Pain since she hurt herself dancing a few years ago and hasn't really healed enough to do it again the way she used to. She'll have to review that one. It disappeared into her room.
Of the two books for me, it was hard to decide which to read first: Cold-Smoking & Salt-Curing Meat, Fish, & Game or Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture Radical Homemakers won the toss and I am enthralled. I've never been a big fan of feminism because it seemed anti-kid, anti-man, and anti-home. I like kids (on a case by case basis), men (usually more then women), and home. I don't like the idea that the market economy is the only one that matters. This book so far is all about that! The smoking book is exciting to me because there are no nitrates or nitrites used & as the mom of a kid with cancer I'm kind of paranoid about those but we love our sausages so much.
