I am thinking of adding a couple of books to my growing bee book library.

Has anyone read:

Sixty Years with Bees
or
Bad beekeeping

What did you think of them ?

Admin,
If you mean Donald Sims '60 years with bees' then it is my favourite, even prefer it to Ted Hooper (heresy). Get it.

Is Honey by the Ton by Field ?
Yes

Oliver Field.

Its my current best read. Complements Donald Simms brilliantly. If you have those 2 books you need only queen rearing books to add to your list. 60 years with bees (Simms) was my best book it now shares top spot..

Hi James,
I seem to strugle to read online books.
What I tend to do is read a couple of pages of the digital edition then go buy it if I find it of interest.

Does anyone else struggle to read books online ?

Yes I do, but then I learnt to read in a pre-varroa age. I even fall asleep reading certain posts on fora , especially when written by people who are clever enough to have 2 Ph. D's. Guess that's why I stay too ignorant to realize that insecticides are bee friendly:confused:
