What I'm Reading This Week

Taxes for Dummies !
I don't usually like to pick up a Dummies book, but in the case of taxes that is my level of understanding.

What I'm Reading Now

Farm Sanctuary by Gene Baur

It is a book about current practices in industrial farming. Reading about the methods of raising cattle, pigs and chickens for mass food production just takes your breath away in the scope of its cruelty and distain for the most basic needs of the animals as well as the workers. However, I most enjoyed the individual profiles of rescued animals. Gene Baur is an excellent writer, very sensitive to both the animals he is defending and the people who read about the appalling practices in our food production industry.
