Farmers are among the most book-minded sections of the community today, yet one often hears it said that "Farmer's don't want books." The statement is only true, in that it is not things that people want but their effects. People don't want refrigerators for instance, but they do want the things that the "fridge" can give them—fresh foods, ice-cream and cold beer. If people don't want books, they do want knowledge, new ideas, romance, adventure, and all the things that books can provide.
