Yesterday a trip into the local shopping centre for a pair of work pants also included a browse through the book shop there. And here is the purchase of the day:
The Self - Sufficiency Manual written by Alison Candlin.
It is truly a wonderful book, from what I have read of it thus far. Even better that it is specifically for Australia and New Zealand.
It is very well written, as well as being very extensive on its covering pretty much all aspects of self sufficiency from growing food to keeping livestock to gathering food from the wilds to preserving to generating electricity and water.
It is also filled with many lovely pictures and drawn diagrams. Every now and then I loved just to flick through it for the pictures.
And no book is complete without a book mark. This one reads "A room without books is like a body without a soul ~ Cicero"
One of my favorite book quotes.
Until next time friends,
