Can a Year on a Farm Based on Animal, Vegetable, Miracle Work?
Barbara Kingsolver with Steve L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year in Food. HarperCollinsPublishers. 2007.
Barbara Kingsolver says in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year in Food, “Our culture is not acquainted with the idea of food as a spiritually loaded commodity. We’re just particular about which spiritual arguments we’ll accept as valid for declining certain food. Generally unacceptable reasons: environmental destruction, energy waste, the poisoning of workers. Acceptable: it’s prohibited by a holy text.” (p. 67). I say both our land and the food produced on that land must be treated as unequivocally holy . . .
The Book Ends Reviews One Book Ends - Another Begins
I've always loved reading books, so my favorite reading apparatus these days is the Kindle Touch, i Pad, and B&N nook. I will never give up the real thing because I do like holding the books as I read but for traveling, driving, waiting at appointments, I will always use one of my electronic friends.
I'm always on the lookout for that new and exciting read on a daily basis so when ever I see something on sale that's a good value I'm there to snatch it up.
I really want to get my books organized so that I can keep track of them all, so I've found a few apps for the iPad that I just love. The app I like the most is pocketpedia3, this app works with the bookpedia app on my Mac and all I have to do is sync the two and I never have to worry about buying duplicates again.
Another great reference is Read, Remember, and Recommend. I love this reference book so much and how much it's opened my eyes to the reading world.
