Country Wisdom Almanac by Storey Editors (on Enki & Total Boox). An almanac is the most familiar and general of guides for gardening, home improvement, recipes. While the exact date of Easter will be dated in past years’ almanac, the other information is pretty timeless.
Planting the Dry Shade Garden by Graham Rice (on all 3). While there are a lot of general gardening books, you will find just as many dedicated to a specific garden type. Whether you have sun or shade, planting fruits or succulents/cacti, or maybe you just want to attract butterflies, there’s a book for you. This one attracted me because my Topeka neighborhood’s huge trees mean there is almost no direct sun!
The American Meadow Garden by John Greenlee (on all 3). Another example of a fantastic specialty title. Transition to a prairie-style planting for a low-maintenance and low-water yard. Native grasses definitely make sense in Kansas.
Vegetable Gardener’s Book of Building Projects by Storey Publishing (on all 3). Storey is also great about bringing you DIY books. This one pulls together basic diagrams and material needs for common garden structures (raised beds, arbors, compost bins, benches, bird feeders).
Never used one of these ebook systems, and wonder which to pick --
