Farmers journal

Farmers Journal is a tome in first act of Diablo III. It is required for the achievement A Quick Study. It can be found in the Fields of Misery, outside the merchant's house along the east wall, or in Sheltered Cottage (Fields of Misery North) on the body of farmer (no quest active).

It reads as follows:

I'm not quite sure what all the fuss is about.  Few farmers turn up dead, and everyone goes running for the hills.  I've lived off these lands for twenty years, and I have not seen any bloodthirsty monsters running about.  No reason I should leave a perfectly good harvest.
