Plenty

Another food book down! I read Plenty by Alisa Smith and JB MacKinnon today at work. Yes, we are that slow. Aside- I've begun bringing my messenger bag to work stocked with various distractions because i have learned, if nothing else, that a bored Melanie is an easily upset Melanie. Today i had 2 books, the new issue of Seed, a notebook and a Sudoku puzzle book.


and i am still updating my blog while i am here anyway.


Back to the reading. This is the third "local food" book i've read in the last year or so and i do have to say I have enjoyed them less as I've gone along. The best was Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan then Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. This one wasn't a bad read at all, it just had a lot more about the couple's relationship than i really wanted to read right now. it is an easy ready, very accessible, it is just Pollan's book is more scientific and Kingsolver's book more thorough.

So this one gets 4/7.
