Books! Books! Books!  The library is filled with them, of course, and so are the bookstores.  Nothing new with that statement, right?! On Monday, I went to the library to do a bit of composting research and came home with a few books. Looking at my selection this morning kind of scares me.  It is proof that I am really confused with where I am in my life.  I checked out 6 books.  They break down like this…oh by the way, I am not putting them into any particular order.  Well that’s not all together true.  My brain is categorizing them as I am typing, and I am getting distracted because I can’t concentrate as I type this…geez!  (Close your mouth, close your brain, just type!) Here goes….

  • 2 composting books found in the kid’s section…but I think they are great for all ages. The only ones I’ve read so far!
  • 2 composting books for adults found in the non fiction adult section. They look boring!
  • 1 non fiction book about an Amish schoolteacher.  What the heck was I thinking?…hilarious
  • 1 fiction book about raising a teenager!…Help! just kidding…no really.  Help I remember how sassy I was to my dad!

I know exactly why I read the kids’ books first.  They look fun.  One is illustrated and the other has photos.  The images drew me in instantly.  The info is well written and easy to understand.  Well of course, Laurie, they’re kids books.  I love kids books so much and encourage all of you to read some more often.  Composting can be intimidating, especially composting with worms.  One of the two books actually “touches” on the topic.  They both explain the importance of composting and the benefits it provides for you and the planet. I highly recommend these two children’s books and will have a link to the amazon store if you can’t find them at your local library or bookstore.

I will try my best to read the other “adult” composting books soon.  No really, I will try!  I do love the title of one, Let it Rot! but it looks too long, and there aren’t many pictures so I think I am going to skim through it.

Now on to the other 2 books!  The Bridge of Peace by Cindy Woodsmall and Teen 2.0 by Robert Epstein, PH.D.  Just the titles crack me up.  They should be linked together.  I am laughing as I am typing this!  How about this title…

The Bridge of Peace for your Teen or The Bridge of Peace away from your Teen or The Bridge of Peace to your Teen or how about this  plain and simple…I NEED to take a ride on The Bridge of Peace

The purpose of this post was to recommend the children’s books, but Hey, Sorry  I got carried away and come to think of it. ……..My brain feels a lot better.  I am ready to start the day!  Woohoo a laxative for the brain!
