We’re committed to sending a complimentary copy of each new and revised book to every county office, but just don’t have a good way to do it these days.

Our livestock project and record books usually dominate 4-H project book sales. So what’s up with The Writer in You and Everyday Food and Fitness in the list above? Sometimes purchases from other states or National 4-H skew the rankings. If we’re talking about our authors’ impact, these sales are very important. You can see titles from The Ohio State University that are selling on National 4-H HERE.)
