Booking It March

It is kinda been a slow reading month.  I am linking up with Life as Mom for Booking It March.

I read I am Hutterite by Mary-Ann Kirby.  I am interested in other cultural religious groups.  I am unfamiliar with Hutterites and I thought this was a really good introduction to the Hutterites.  A much better introduction than the rather lame somewhat reality show that was on TV. Mary Ann's grew up Hutterite for most of her childhood.  She delves into some of the history of the Hutterites and daily living in a Hutterite community. It was riveting and fascinating to me.

I picked The Wisdom of the Radish by Lynda Hopkins off a library display on gardening.  It was a good read about a young couple who set out to run a small farm.  I think there are probably far better books on this topic but this was decent enough. I did love the part of her book on how she came to love chickens.

On the recommendation from last months Booking It, I read Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth. It can be graphic but I thought it was really interesting how birth and pregnancy was handled during this time period.  I did go ahead and watch much of the first season of Call the Midwife and found that the show is pretty true to the book.  I think together they really compliment each other.  Netflix has the first season
