Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is the top ten books I’ve read and would like to own. Since I get most of my books from the library, this is actually pretty easy for me! These are primarily nonfiction and reference books, as I don’t tend to re-read fiction, so there’s no point in buying something I’ve already read. There are a few exceptions, though!
First we have several I’d like for my Survival Library. (To read more about that, look here.) I’m also probably going to write more about it this Sunday.
The Complete Guide To Saving Seeds is a GORGEOUS reference book. The Suburban Micro-Farm has a ton of ideas for gardening in the city, and The Food Forest Handbook has SO much information. I’d love to add all three to my personal collection.
Storey’s Country Wisdom and Know-How is one I currently have out from the library, so I haven’t reviewed it yet, but it’s excellent. Storey also has a ton of manuals on farm animals – I’ve read the ones on Ducks, Sheep, and Chickens. I’d like to own the entire line.
In NON-homesteading books, I’d like to pick up Rage Becomes Her. It was a fascinating look at women’s anger – why we’re angry, and how we’re treated because of the perception of that anger.
My last few will actually be fiction – I’d love to own Red, White, and Royal Blue, The Power, Vox, and The Priory of the Orange Tree. Four of the best fiction books I’ve read over the past couple of years. And yes, I know this means I went over ten. I’d buy everything if I could!
Great list! I need to read Red, White & Royal Blue and The Priory of the Orange Tree asap, and Rage Becomes Her sounds really interesting. I need to check that one out!
I love the practicality of the first half of your list.
