The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan
The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

Laura Nugent, January 7, 2010

Michael Pollan introduces a large amount of important and interesting information in a very accessible book, using the storyline and history of four meals to increase Americans' awareness of the food we eat.

The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
The Lacuna

Laura Nugent, January 7, 2010

I was skeptical about this book from Barbara Kinsolver, since it seemed to depart from her usual subject matter, but she treated this subject with as much knowledge and care as she has her other books. The story is engaging, the characters lovable and interesting, and as with her other works, I found myself learning about a new subject with such ease that I was surprised at the amount of information she was able to convey. And as with all of Barbara Kingsolver's books, I have so come to love the characters, that I wish the story could just continue.

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

Literally laugh out loud. I don't know that I've ever laughed so hard reading a book, or been able to read whole sections aloud for an entire bus load of people to enjoy.

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
Prodigal Summer

Laura Nugent, November 13, 2007

One of the best explanations of ecology that even someone who doesn't like biology can understand, appreciate, and apply to her own life.
