There are only so many hours in a day. I only have so much money. The money thing is variable…I could do any number of things from a bake sale to a kickstarter campaign to make more money. No amount of kickstarter could give me more time. In theory I could hire an employee but there are things I just want to do. Me. You know? For example, I can’t hire someone to play with my kids. I also can’t hire someone to read for me.
Here is a list of books I’m currently reading or have in queue. Several I could finish in a couple of hours, some will require several sittings. At least one will require some serious rumination.
Sales book with an emphasis on seeing the world as you want it to be. Julie won’t stop talking about it so it’s high on my list.
A series of essays about farming and the need for agricultural reform. I have read this before so it should be quick. I’m looking through several of Logsdon’s works for a few specific quotes for an upcoming post.
This book is turning my world upside down…and I’ve read a few permaculture books in my time. Wow. Just wow. Look for more later. He’s wanting me to tree my farm…for grazing. Wow. Use chestnuts as a source of High-Fructose Syrup. Yeah. He was recently on Agricultural Insights but you’ll have to pay for access to the archives.
This is a book you should have on your coffee table. It’s beautiful. Beyond that, Faulk does a great job of explaining base permaculture concepts and his ideas of proper implementation. I don’t agree with everything anybody says but I find Faulk’s ideas to be appealing.
Just came in the mail today. Bigger book than I expected at 470 pages. My hope and understanding is this book gives real-world examples of grazers implementing holostic management. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it.
Now, when we get to the real post about budgeting your day and I talk about the time I spend reading, you’ll know specifically what I’m chewing my way through right now. Just know that I read for a little bit in the morning, read when I’m not driving the carpool, read over lunch and often read for a little bit in the evening. I have to read and it just has to fit in where it can.
What are you reading? How do you find the time?
