It’s been quite sometime since I’ve updated the Operation 52 Page. I still have a few books I’ve completed that need to be added to the list but as of now I have attached 3 very enjoyable reads. They are, as always, in order from the first book I have read to the last. Michael Pollan’s “Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual”, “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto”, and Matthew Inman’s “5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides)” are the three new wonderful additions to my cognitive collection.
I am currently reading Michael Pollan’s “The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals” which will complete my recent reading into the history of food and the art of eating healthy. Which, as he’s mentioned, really should not be an art at all. Eating should be something inherent in us, something we have learned over a long long time. It’s rather fascinating how the desire for riches could cause small groups of people to spend so much time and money on deceiving the American (and slowly the world) eaters.
It’s perhaps a topic for another day, one that I’ve touched on previously. I’ve also finished a rather large World of Warcraft Graphic Novel which will be finding it’s way into the list soon. There is a business text I’ll be adding, I had finished another but it was so poor that I don’t wish to give it any advertising that I can avoid.
There will soon be 3 wonderful titles from the late Carl Sagan going onto the list. A plethora of other things as well, I’m certainly behind on my schedule but there is no reason to give up. We all fall off the bus sometimes and it is important to not imprison ourselves in the American thought process of failure being infinite. One can temporarily fail and still succeed, or at least I’d like to think so.
As always Operation 52 can be found at the top navigation bar or simply by clicking [here].
