3 Bee Books from the library that I am reading
« on: February 05, 2010, 12:08:49 AM »
I went to the library today and picked up 3 books

The Biology of the Honey Bee- Mark L. Winston
Bees of the World- Christopher O'Toole & Anthony Raw
The Honey Bee-James L. Gould & Carol Grant Gould

I am only about a fith of the way into the first book in that list and I am already learning a lot of stuff. I recommend this to us newbies who are trying to get into beekeeping. I will not recieve my first colony until April.

You can learn a lot here but I wish I had read these books first. It would probably saved me asking yall eleventy zillion questions. I will probably still be full of questions but maybe they might be more educated questions.

The Gould book is something that I never see mentioned, but is a treasure!
