Since there is no dedicated topic heading for book reviews here in these forums I will put an entry here. Admins please relocate if this is an inappropriate thread, thank you. The first addition for this noob to my beekeeping library is titled 'The Hive And The Honeybee'. Dadant and Sons editors/publishers. © 1946, 1949, 1963, 1975. Fourth printing 1978. Library of Congress catalog card number: 63-15838 Hardcover 740 pages. This seems to be quite an all encompassing tome. 22 chapters profusely illustrated. I will reserve an opinion and thus an educated assessment due to my inexperience. Suffice it to say I have my plate full for starters and as such this seems as good a place as any.
