today someone saw the cover of the omnivore’s dilemma, and asked me what the dilemma was.  and then he asked me what interest i had in reading about food and farming and etc.  to which i replied that i read all kinds of things.  so here are a few of the things i’d like to read:

the omnivore’s dilemma: a natural history of four meals


i don’t: a contrarian history of marriage


descartes’ bones: a skeletal history of the conflict between faith and reason


traffic: why we drive the way we do


snark: it’s mean, it’s personal, and it’s ruining our conversation


collapse: how societies choose to fail or succeed


the spiral staircase: my climb out of darkness


owls and other fantasies


just to name a few.  and you? what would you like to read?

    Wow, I have only heard of two of these! I’ll have to look into them. I actually can’t think right now of books I want to read…sad, but my brain is tired! I usually just go to the library/store and pick books that look interesting!

    i found most of these in just that way. the omnivore’s dilemma is great–definitely worth a read, though it might ruin some food for you for a bit…i forgot to list _beyond heaving bosoms: the smart bitches’ guide to romance_; just because it sounds like fun.
