I finished the rest of the existing A Song of Ice and Fire books. I'm not sure how I feel about them, the giant world of characters let's the story be told from all sorts of views, but it is also kind of unfocused.

I've had a small weird obsession and over the last year I've listened to almost every diet book my library has on Overdrive. I started because I was curious about the major ideas in the debate (carbs/fat, omnivore/vegetarian). My concussion is that whole vegetables are probably less suspect than everything else. No other conclusions can be drawn without starting over with biology, anthropology, nutrition, med-school, and then 30 years reading and evaluating existing research, by which time I will have developed my own blinding bias of course.

In Defense of Food probably resonated with me most.
