    prefer good chicken books... but if you found an awsome read... or a great cook book... Suggestions??

    A couple great fiction books - The Kite Flyer and The 5 People you meet in Heavan.

    None of the non-fiction books stuck out yet as a must buy.. I found an awsome egg cookbook at the library... but can't find the name of it

    "The Egg and I" by Betty McDonald. A very old book that is still FUNNY!

    Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, a Year of Food life by Barbara Kingsolver All about producing and eating food produced close to where you live-I am trying to do this myself. It was a great read

    Banter, you double posted.

    A good historical fiction book is "The Golden Goblet". Really good!

    my sister read that and really liked it. i love "Mara: Daughter of the Nile" and "Moccasin Trail", which are also by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. Have you read those Tio?
    (i hope we are thinking of the same "golden goblet", i just realized there could be any number of books with a title like that. [​IMG] )​

    Quote:I agree. This actually got me interested in doing chickens. Hadn't given it real thought before reading the book. The audio read by the authors was really good.
