Perhaps it is the nature of this holiday that my usual reading is about food. Past readings have included Barbara Kingsolver's, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and Michael Pollan's, The Omnivore's Dilemma. This year my option was something a bit lighter, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Complete Stories and Novels of Sherlock Holmes.
Well, my reading wound up not being completely food-free. The weekly Newsweek's front page article was about the food discrepancies that have emerged in the US social classes. *big despondent sigh*
