Favorite Books and Documentaries

These are listed in the order I have read or viewed them, and I have only posted the ones that were inspiring or extremely informative to me. I will update this list from time to time, so check back to see what I've been reading or watching. I need to mention that one of the first inspirations for a simple life came through reading a weekly online column called, The Amish Cook found at http://www.amishcookonline.com/, and look for the weekly column.
