Mini Farming: Mini Farming For Beginners: DIY Guide To Build A Self Sustainable Backyard (Backyard Farming - Homesteading - Backyard Chickens - Handbook - Backyard Gardening - Mini Farming)Mini Farming: Mini Farming For Beginners: DIY Guide To Build A Self Sustainable Backyard by Anders Svensson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It has been my recent mission to read as much about self-sustaining farming as possible so that I will know as much as I can I when move out to the country and start living in a more ecological and healthful way. So here is yet another sampling of what I’m reading.

Though this book has no clickable references, this is still full of a lot of interesting ideas as to run a small farm. I will come back to read it again once we are moved in. Remember, though, it is for beginners. For those who have been farming for a while this is not for you.

Three Sisters (Emily Castles Mysteries)Three Sisters by Helen Smith

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Disclaimer: I was given this book for an honest review.

I started reading this just before going to sleep. I finished at a decent bedtime. I had to read it with the text-to-speech turned on as I found it going rather slowly. I didn’t care for Emily, the main character. She seemed like a nosey neighbor more than anything.

Beware of the spoiler, the title of the book. That took all the mystery out of the story. Most of the time I found I was feeling left out. That the author just gave it all to me. And yet… Would you believe it? I still have no real idea whodunit. Since I don’t like short stories, and I don’t much like mysteries, this didn’t feed me anything. Even the chance that I could travel to England and learn something new about the country or her people, fell flat.

Okay, there seems to be a lot of higher star ratings, so it may just be me. I don’t feel at all compelled to see what happens to Emily next. But I wish the author well and that you all will find me wrong.
