Cindy Interesting. I think this exactly the book I need. So, are you enjoying it? Is it worth reading? I'm so curious!

Laura I've read a number of homemaking books (see my homemgmt shelf) and this is by far the most comprehensive book I have read to date. I have an affinity for self-help/how to books and thus enjoyed reading it so far. However, this book could easily be classified as reference. Just to give you an idea, there are eight sections with topics ranging from food to safety, and each section is also broke down into more detailed chapers under its respective headings. The book is almost 900 pages in length.

As a side note, the author received her PhD from U of R (where I grew up) and taught at Purdue (where I graduated). For some reason, that makes me think I can relate to her. Silly.

I would love to own a copy for my personal library.
