Rounding out the week with even MORE books I’ve read….

If you click on the book titles, it will give you the link to the book online.

  1. The Complete Formulary of Magical Oils

  2. The Lost Book of Remedies

  3. Medicinal Herbs : A Beginner’s Guide

  4. The Illustrated Herbiary

These are all all pretty fantastic. I had hesitated on getting “The Lost Book of Remedies”, because, frankly, it was advertised in a way that made it look fanatical. That said… it’s actually probably, the best herb book I own.

7 Steps to Optimal Health. I was asked to read this book and write a review (more on that later). It’s short… and looks to be self published. It would certainly have benefited from the critical eye of an editor. Wasn’t that impressed overall.

6. Every Frenchman Has One by Olivia de Haviland. This was probably really cute when it was published in 1962.

7. America’s Forgotten Folk Arts by Fred Fields. This is really good. Lots of great vintage photographs and details about circus life, traveling carnivals, et all

8. Together We Rise — the Women’s March

9. Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America

10 Radical Hope

These last 3 books… I read in anticipation of the midterm voting sessions. They are optimistic, thoughtful, well written.. . and perfect for those despairing about life in these trying times.
