Arrangement & Presentation: There are limited points of access and the index was not user friendly.
Diversity: All ages and intellectual levels can enjoy this book. It is catered more toward a rural area that would benefit from crop tips.

Every year I get the Old Farmer’s Almanac, usually along about late September, and every year along about late November I read it. I have yearly copies of the Old Farmer’s Almanac going back to 1979, and I love reading each year’s new edition, not only for the weather forecasts but because of all the other information contained in its pages.

I have yearly copies of the Old Farmer’s Almanac going back to 1979, and I love reading each year’s new edition, not only for the weather forecasts but because of all the other information contained in its pages.

Besides the weather forecasts, this issue contains the usual reference information (table of measures, wind chill tables, heat index tables, gestation information on various common animals, astronomical information (the Total Eclipse of the Sun next November will be great to see if you are in Australia), plus various interesting articles concerning gardening, baking, farming, and other household pursuits. This is also a good reference book to turn to if you need to figure out how much wallpaper to use in a room, or to determine which plants would be good to plant to attract butterflies.

Granted, a good bit of this information, if not most of it, can be garnered from the Internet; but I enjoy hanging the current year’s copy of the Almanac on a nail on the bathroom wall using the handy hole punched in the corner, and checking out the information that may be noted for each new day in the Calendar Pages once I wake up each morning. (And who knows; someday I might actually need the Gardening Information in the Almanac.)
