Books On Birds, Butterflies, Insects, Wildlife, Gardening, And Photography

Okay, I’ve done it.  I’ve cataloged most all my books.  I still have some computer books at work I need to catalog, but for this blog I think I’m complete.  I’ve organized the books into sections and I’ll also make the list available for download should you choose to keep it as a reference for yourself.

I’ve also created links to many of the books and they will take you to Amazon’s site should you wish to order them or read the reviews.  Here’s a download to all the books in Excel format Butterfly, Birds, Insects, Photography, Pond, Reptiles and Gardening Books

Don & Kate - You obviously done your homework with all the photography books, which explains why you are so good.

WE couldn’t help but notice the title of the one pet book, “The Barf Diet” Our cat has always been a puker, and we may have to look into that book.

It looks like you have been really busy inside with the book cataloging during the long Texas drought. Good work!July 11, 2011 – 6:45 am

texdr - The BARF diet isn’t a diet for cats pets who are vomiting, rather it stands for Biological Appropriate Raw Food. In essence it makes the argument that many commercial pet foods are unhealthy and it would be better to feed them a more natural diet.July 11, 2011 – 8:20 am
