THE OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA….By the way, the clear winner from my book thread the other day was Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. I’ll try to gather together some of the other widely recommended books from that thread later, but this one must have gotten at least a dozen shoutouts just in the first 50 comments alone. It’s a great choice since it’s otherwise not the kind of book I’d notice, which means I’m almost certain to learn some interesting new stuff. Thanks, everyone!
