lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation - Michael Pollan I am not the biggest fan of Michael Pollan, but when I heard him talking about this book on NPR I was intrigued. Still, after looking through it and attempting to read every chapter I just couldn't recommend it. (Unless you are already a fan of Pollan, in which case he probably doesn't come off as smug and bossy.)
