Happy Birthday America!

Happy Birthday America!

It’s the Fourth of July, a time to reflect on our nation’s history and how incredible it is to live in America. We have some pretty amazing founding fathers who thoughtfully crafted our Declaration of Independence and Constitution to be living documents equally as important today as the day they were conceived. Here at Lazy Day Books, we’d also like to say Thank You to today’s heroes, the men and women of our armed forces who work hard every day protecting us and our freedom! We are incredibly lucky to have you on our side!

A long holiday weekend is the perfect time to brush up on our American History. Whether you’re looking for historical inspiration or fun facts to talk about at a BBQ, we’ve put together a great selection for you here.

Book Review: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

What would it take to grow all our own food?

This is the question the Kingsolver family asked themselves after moving from the hard Arizona desert to lush hill country in the Appalachians of Virginia. Over the next year, the family of four embarked on a quest that would change the way they eat forever.

This thoughtful novel journals their first year being totally food-independent, starting with the first signs of spring (the Asparagus) through the last pumpkin harvest, describing in poignant detail the pleasure one derives from the hard work of gardening, canning, and responsibly raising food.
