Hi my name is Linda and I am new to this. I have been cooking and baking for years. But I real never got into the bread baking part of it. I now have the time my kids have moved out. I love this site I check on this site every day. My question is what are the best books for me to buy? Also what tools do I need to get started?

 Thanks for your help

Start with TFL's excellent Handbook - just click the tab at the top of the screen and that will get you off to a good start.

Books have been discussed here so many times that your best bet is to enter "best books to buy" in the TFL search bar and you'll have hours of reading.

The most important tool to have is a good digital scale.  

Happy exploring.
