Topic: How do you choose a book?
Posted: 24 May 2020 11:55

I usually get interested in something in history, or in personal improvement, etc. Then I find out what book(s) are considered the "best" in that area by those who live and work in that area. Finally, I find the one best book, and bury myself in it until I just about "wear it."

I think I put it best here.

Finally back home, where I can drop by and say Hi! My Pear tree blossomed on time this Spring but my dogwoods are all just blossoming now, and my apple trees have just began to blossom. With all the rain the past few years, just about my entire tree cove has doubled in height! No exaggeration. I am hoping to put in some poplars and maples. Then I will have a nice tightly cropped mix of about 6 deciduous and 2 conifer,types. The first six types are tightly planted to insure competitiveness for sunlight. The reason for it is to produce trees with the harder wood than trees that are spaced on a tree farm.
