I read a good bit to try to keep up with all the changes that are taking place in my business world and I try to do that reading early in the day when my eyes are fresh from a good night’s sleep.

Unlike fine red wine or a bottle of Single Malt Scotch, my eyes are not getting better as they age.  Consequently, my recreational reading has taken a severe hit the last year.

It was December of 2015 that I read a post on David Kanigan’s blog about a book written by James Rebanks, titled  The Shepherd’sLife.  I wrote about it here and described myself being “seduced” by the book.

It took five years, but I received another Rebanks book as a birthday gift and I’ll have to figure out a way to start getting up earlier to read a little each day.

The book is entitled English Pastoral, An Inheritance, and the first page begins with this:

I’ll report back.

    After I read this post, I bought a copy of The Shepherd’s Life. I had never heard of it , so thank you. I knew very little about sheep until I started watching This Farming Life on BritBox. After watching that series many things in this book are less confusing than they would have been otherwise. A beautiful spring day today after the deluge last week.
