When you are intent on making every page count and fitting in every morsel of information you know will benefit readers, unfortunately some sacrifices must be made in the publishing world to reach this goal. In the case of my new book, Getting Laid: Everything You Need to Know About Raising Chickens, Gardening and Preserving — with Over 100 Recipes! (ISBN 1632280213,) in order to deliver the encyclopedia of cumulative farm to table knowledge I wished to present and empower readers with, I had to cut the page count which meant sacrificing the “resource guide” suggestions for further reading in the back of the book.
Well, I just couldn’t leave you hanging without this valuable bit of information so I went one step further and produced an even bigger, more comprehensive farm to table websites list to share on Sustainable Chick. Hope this continues to enhance your sustainable living journey!
