Best Book:

Hands down, the best book was Crimson Petal and the White.  This one’s a serious contender for Book of the Year for me.  Amazing!  Long… but amazing and worth every page.

Worst Book:

Easy–the Life in the UK text book.  It’s so dry and just dull… but I passed the test so I guess that’s okay.

    1. Omnivore was really, really interesting and really easy to read/understand given I don’t know much about the food industry. The only drawback was that it made me totally, freakishly paranoid about food for a few days… even now there are some things I won’t ever eat again after reading that. McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets? Never again; doesn’t matter that they’ve been the only thing I’ve ever ordered from McDonald’s since I was five. Never again.

Leave some love!
