Jeff from OK
I just started beekeeping, my first bees came from a water meter cutout that was only possible due to watching all of JP's youtube videos. I've had them for about 2 months now.
I decided I wanted bees back around December and started reading everything I could get my hands on. My favorite bee book has bee "The Beekeepers Handbook". I think I'm on my 3rd or 4th time through it.
