I used to read my books on the way home from school. Every so often I'd lift up my head, look around and step back onto the sidewalk. At home I laid on my bed to read. At bedtime I stayed up till I passed out with the book in my hand, straining my eyes to see the words on the page.
I still have some of my favourite books from my childhood, on my bookshelves. Nowadays, my books combined with my husbands, add up to hundreds and hundreds. I find myself rummaging through second hand bookstores, looking for childhood favourites I don't own anymore, to reread.
I've started a new page on Northern Gardeners Almanac called, My
Gardening Library, See the link in the sidebar. It's a list of books from my gardening book collection, many of them I refer to when writing this blog. Some of them I've reviewed and still others I've talked about over here.
Do you like to read? I would love to hear about books you are reading, books you want to read or books you have read.
