(Kim here) Spring. Gardening books. I cannot wait to get my hands on No Guff Vegetable Gardening by Donna Balzer and Steven Biggs.
I think one of the authors is dropping one off soon. I have my garden primed and eager to get started on getting herbs and vegetables in it! Every year I get a new gardening book. New beginnings and it will carry me through the summer.
(Angela here) The lazy days of summer are just around the corner and I always turn to some light reading. Stuff that can be read in the backyard or at the pool. That’s likely to include Julie Garwood, Nora Roberts and Jan Karon as well as some YA novels like Carol Anne Shaw’s Hannah and the Spindle Whirl.
(Peg here) This is usually the time of year when I want to redecorate. Again. But better than last time. With stuff I really like. With planning and good judgement. With actual taste and style. Usually, I end up buying new dishcloths and it seems to stifle any healthy urge I have for change. But, I read plenty of decorating books before I get to that point. A perennial fave (no pun intended, Kim) is Christopher Lowell’s 7 Layers of Design. He’s a really smart guy who explains things extremely well.
