so many books
There are so many well-written, beautifully designed books on every aspect of gardening and landscape design, that I'm wondering how you writers find a niche.
My 3 most recent buys are from 3 completely different areas:
Color for Adventurous Gardeners (Christopher Lloyd), Shady Retreats (Barbara Ellis), and Paths of Desire (Dominique Browning). Each of these has something to offer, though there isn't anything especially new about any of them.
A friend once said, about a book written by a mutual acquaintance, that it "filled a much-needed void." (And, no, he wasn't confusing his parts of speech.) Is this something you consider when you start a new project? Or, do you just work on what interests you, and not worry about whether it'll find a place on bookshelves when it's done?
