Folks, This Ain’t Normal

Well, it’s time. Almost! The long waited for, much anticipated, newest written piece of work by Joel Salatin. FOLKS, THIS AIN’T NORMAL

Yippee! πŸ™‚ We here are at Polyface are super excited about this new book of Joel’s and you know what? None of us have gotten to read it yet either.

I was able to snatch a few chapters off the desk at Christmas (shh, don’t tell), but that is pretty much it. Believe me the manuscript sitting there beautifully stacked up nice and neat with each chapter paper clipped together was quite the temptation. Sort of like putting candy at eye level for a toddler. But alas, I resisted and decided to wait just like all the rest of the world.

The book releases Monday from the publishers so I’m hoping that means that we all have a copy in hand by the end of the week.

Here at the Hen House, we’ll be talking about this book all through the fall season and into December. Will you join us?

This book is the first one that Joel has not self published so it will be available in hardback, e-book, and audio – read by Joel himself. πŸ™‚

You can read more about this book by visiting the webpage that Hachette Publishers made for it.

    Bought it for my husband’s birthday which is in a month. I hid the unopened under my side of the bed so that I’m not tempted to read it until he can. It’s so hard, I’m not known for my patience!

  11. I managed to get a copy from amazon marketplace and it arrived yesterday. My husband has snaffled it, so I can’t comment yet. But, he is reading it every time he has a spare moment, and all I get from him is a chuckle now and then or the phrase “Joel’s good!”

    All the best with it

    Thanks for the ‘gospel’ you preach. I’m confident our Lord is smiling on you.

    read the book and it amounts to a rehash of his video information. when he says he is a christian libertarian capitalist lunatic farmer the word that vibrates is capitalist for sure.

    I just recieved it as a birthday present from my brother and sister-in-law. Love it–especially the action items at the ends of the chapters.

  15. Lisa says:

    I adore this book! I am halfway thru and am soaking in every word. Love it so much I did a book review and promotion on my blog … Thank you so much, Joel Salatin, for writing this book and living the normal life!

    I purchased as soon as I could, and I’ve just started reading it! I’m reading it on my Kindle, though, which made me feel a little guilty when I read in the book about how folks are so preoccupied by electronic devices πŸ™‚
