"Part of my farming vocation is that I'm not in my house reading as much as I'd like to be," Beth Schiller tells us. So audio- books are the perfect companion while she's driving to meetings or packing up certified organically grown herbs, leafy greens, and root vegetables to sell at the farmers' market. Along with business management titles, audio- books by Rebecca Solnit and John Green, and Educated, Schiller lists Silent Spring among her winter listens. "It added to my thinking about my broader connection with the com- munity and the farm." Winter in Maine can be a slower time for farmers. Come April, though, Schiller says, "the seedling green- houses are packed to the gills and ready to overflow, and I'm getting ready to just be out there planting."—Jennifer M.
