Is anyone planning to read In Defense of Food? I mistakenly ordered it in CD instead of book but I'm glad I did. I'm listening to it while I write my next newspaper column about food and agriculture. I'm only 10 minutes into it but already pleased.

I don't know that book. Your column sounds interesting. How do you mix the tow subjects?

I would like to, based soley on my opinion of "OD" but there are some others ahead of it in the queue; "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver, and I'd like to read Joel Salatin's "Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal" too, and some books on canning.

I am reading this right now; I love her rueful attitude in the beginning--she is honest about how it's not easy to make this lifestyle work.
I have not heard of In Defense of Food but will check it out.

I read In Defense of Food a few weeks ago. Great book and very enlightening. I love the "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." motto.
