I eat stories like grapes

I haven’t said much about books in a while, but the two I’ve read in the past few weeks deserve mentioning.

  • Stiff by Mary Roach.  A book about cadavers.  I know, sounds a little morbid and not awesome, but it is.  It’s short, really interesting, and will give you a new appreciation for all that those who donate their bodies to science do for the living.  Read it.
  • East of Eden by John Steinbeck.  I am one of the few college grads in the country that never read this book (or seen the movie).   A 600+ page classic, I had no idea what it was about and was a little wary going in.  But I like Steinbeck and decided to give it a shot. Verdict?  I LOVED IT.  I loved every second of this book.  It took me about 5 days to read (thanks largely to the fact that I was stuck in the Chicago airport for 24 hours with nothing else to do.)   I’m sorry I didn’t read it sooner.

He never fell, he never slipped back, he never flew.
