Thank you. Thank you. Thank YOU!
Your encouraging comments in the last post brought me out of my funk. You guys are the best!
After several months of being on the wait list for Food Rules at the library and still being #39 in line, I broke down and purchased this book from B&N. It is an excellent, easy read, and I love the simple rules like, "If it's the same word in every language, it's not food (Think Big Mac, Cheetos)."
I finished reading The Book Thief last night. And what happens to Himmel Street at the end, well, I find it constantly in my thoughts today. Narrated by death (but not in a scary way at all), the book takes place in Nazi Germany and follows the story of a young girl.
Anyone read The Book Thief or Food Rules (or one of Pollan's other food books)?
