Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think by Brian Wansink
Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think

Matt Mapes, September 23, 2011

Terrific book! Eating right and losing weight is not some fad. The author gives you realistic goals to shoot for, but you have to realize that there are no quick fixes. He delves into how our whole culture is out to make us fat and we have to be on the ball and aware of our surroundings and all the input our body and brain receives to understand our eating impulses. This work definitely makes you think and could change your life!

The Road (Random House Movie Tie-In Books) by Cormac Mccarthy

Beautiful imagery throughout the book. But a heartrending story. The dialogue is different and takes a little while getting used to. But it is unique. Definitely belongs in a dystopian collection.
