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.
