Tyndale Blog Tour: Almost Amish

Author: Nancy Sleeth
Genre: How-to
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Type: Non-fiction
Number of pages: 244
My overall opinion: I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Nancy Sleeth offers all kinds of helpful tips for organizing and simplifying your life, in the areas of home, technology, nature, and others. In places, she was a tad more environmentalist then I am, but not as much as I’d worried she might be from reading the back. I especially liked her lists of things she learned – they were humorous, but her faith shone through. J She wasn’t suggesting that we should all be Amish – rather, she was pointing out things that they do that we might do well to copy. She also has a variety of interesting facts about the Amish, all worked into the text. Despite being a teen girl (and this book is more aimed at adult women) I was eager to come back to this book whenever I had to put it down. Almost Amish was a good book, and one I’ll be glad to read again someday.
