    Default A darn good read

    I'm sure some of you have already read "Factory Man" by Beth Macy as it has been out for a few years now, but it was new to me and I highly recommend it to all you wood butchers out there.

    Just looked on Amazon. They have two versions. One for $821.94 and the other for $9.35. Both are paperback. Wonder which one I should add to my cart?

    I read it a while ago...it's pretty interesting. In the intro from the author she mentions that her mom (I think?) worked for the Grimes Mfg company. It's founder, Warren Grimes, was Ted Hall's grandfather!
