There is nothing better than a Saturday afternoon curled up on the couch (or perhaps on the porch swing) with a good book. Several of my Real Farmwives gal pals (including me) are avid readers.
So I’ve decided to start a “Saturday Book Club” that will appear right here from time-to-time. I’ll share some of the books we are currently reading, books
our their children are reading, books that are our all-time favorites and books (or owner’s manuals) that the farmers in our lives are reading.
To get us started, two of the Real Farmwives offer insight on their current reads. Enjoy!

I just finished the book The Ballad of Trenchmouth Taggert by M. GLENN TAYLOR. I really enjoyed it. Maybe one of the best ways to describe Trenchmouth is that he is an earthier, PG-13 version of Forrest Gump. Born in the hills and coal country of West Virginia, he is abandoned when just days old and then adopted by a widow lady who runs a moonshine still and helps treat his condition. The story is rich with adventure, a bit risqué in places, but it totally embraces the life of the hill people. T.T. does come off the mountain for some incredible journeys, and then he stays on the mountain for years at a time.
My blog pal Katie, at Southern-Belle-Simple suggested this title, plus a few more that I would like to check out next.
Here’s the biggest story, though. This is the very first book I read on my Kindle! I’ve been trying to embrace it, but as an English teacher, I miss turning the pages. This story was so good, the different page turning methods faded away!
