I added this to my TBR after seeing the author speak at #TXBookFest a couple years ago. I don‘t read poetry very often, as I often don‘t enjoy it and it can make my mind wander a lot.

There were parts of this I really liked. As a backyard birdwatcher, I know a lot of the birds listed here. I enjoyed the descriptions of birding environments, and the addition of the author‘s experiences bird watching as a black man are important to hear.

This cabinet of curiosities left me feeling cranky about its shortcomings. If you want more details, my rant review is in video format here: https://youtu.be/4VYsDnzFfBQ

TrishB 😁 I‘m definitely curious now! 1w
Lindy @TrishB I hope you are curious enough to watch the video. It‘s about 25 minutes long. If you are curious about the book, borrow it from the library, don‘t buy it! 1w

I think I‘m going to enjoy the year with John Wright guiding my foraging through the hedgerows. This months his advice is sound - how to get the slimy off Velvet Shank wild mushrooms …. Fry them or simply embrace the slime as a thickening agent! 🤣

Chrissyreadit Have you ever foraged for mushrooms? It‘s common here but I‘m so scared to! 3w
Mitch @Chrissyreadit never! We‘ve walked past amazing ones - convinced they will all kill us! 3w
Chrissyreadit That‘s me too! I‘m going to be really interested as you learn this. 3w

One of my new rituals for 2022 will be to spend the first weekend of every month reading from almanacs and my foraging calendar book - in the hope to be more observant and regain the vocabulary of the rural. Thanks @Chrissyreadit for inspiring me ♥️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa That sounds like a great idea! 3w
tpixie @Mitch @Chrissyreadit what a thoughtful goal! 3w

Just finished my last book of 2021, which I've been reading throughout the year. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ I love John Lewis-Stempel. Haven't picked a 2022 yearlong read yet but might very well be another JLS.

readordierachel What a lovely illustration 🦊 3w

😜 Truth!

The upside of Zoom is not having to travel to meetings.

TrishB Yes but I used to have some great work travelling! I‘m thinking I‘m helping the environment. 3w

Treated myself to this old book - which details the life and lessons of a hermit, Mason Walton. His cabin once stood along my favourite local hiking trail - and I often think of him whilst tromping through the woods. Excited to read his book!

Chrissyreadit Yay!!! You‘re back 🎉🥳 3w

mandarchy @Addison_Reads I bet. I read this book several years ago and I'm not a scientist, but I'll never forget it. 4w
Addison_Reads I just saw this. He was such a wonderful influence on my scientific career. 4w

Good info that makes you want to chuck yours and your kids' devices in the bin and head to the hills. I'm in the transition generation where I grew up free range roaming the woods while also experiencing the joys of technology, but I can say the loss of quiet wilderness is having a deeper impact the older I get. I'm glad I drug my own kids out while they were growing up.

CampbellTaraL Audiobook Note: I set this aside originally last year, gave it another go this year and actually finished the audio version, but still did not like the narrator. I'm sure she's fun to listen to with children's fiction, that style of overly acted perky just didn't do it for me with this topic. I recommend the print edition though, for sure. 1mo
