happy day.

happy easter. happy earth day. happy day of rest from the regular grind.

happy day.

today i’m lucky enough to indulge in a book that i like so much – i’m reading it slowly so it won’t end as fast. the book is titled Goat Song by Brad Kessler.
it is my favourite type of book: non-fiction with an engaging narrative. i understand its worth, but i’ve never been a fan of fiction as i’m somewhat hooked on the idea of knowing well… everything. the world is so vast and fascinating, and i’ve only so much time here, so i sometimes get caught up in the feeling that i’m in a race to indulge in it all.

anyways, to make a non-fiction really speak to my little heart, it must have a narrative that i can relate to, respect, or admire. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver snuggly fits into this category as well. (i suppose i should admit that both of these books are about farming – which is another shoe-in qualifier).

what are you reading this weekend?
stores are closed, the air is brisk but cold, none of us have to go to work today. let’s read.
happy day.

have i mentioned that goats are my favourite animal? some days i catch myself picking out baby goat names. (but don't tell anyone!)

p.s. thank you Farmbrarian for reviewing this book and bringing us together! check out their lovely blog to find more earthy reads.
