Observant folks may have noticed there’s a new tab atop The Dew’s home page, one marked “Bookshelf.” Because friends often ask us to recommend books, we’ve decided to share a few that have given us inspiration and/or useful tidbits about gardening, cooking, building projects, and sucking the proverbial marrow out of life.
We’ve intentionally avoided advertising on the site, refusing to allow our opinions to be influenced by Mad Men. Don’t worry — this page is no different. We’re not making any money from directed sales of these titles, even the ones we’ve reviewed. We just think books are shiny and magical and want to point out the ones that have made us laugh. Or think. Or run into the yard with a shovel and a devilish gleam in the eye. So far it’s a short list with only eight titles, but we’ll add new discoveries as we find them. In the meantime, happy reading.
