{book} Food Matters by Mark Bittman: Readalong?

One of my goals for this year is to read at least one book a month, and in an effort to do so I have been selecting books at random from the list of 100 that I created (last month I read Freedom by Jonathan Franzen). This month the random generator popped out Food Matters by Mark Bittman, which I have been looking forward to reading ever since I watched Food Inc. back in December.

While I posted this selection over on Unplugged, I thought that the majority of BEB readers may be interested in it, and some of you may have even read it already. If you would like to pick it up and take a read (it’s actually a rather short read, as a decent portion of the book is dedicated to recipes), I invite everyone to read it along with me.

The book touches on some hot food topics at the moment – government involvement with agriculture business, the impact of farming on the environment, the impact of the current U.S. diet on our health, etc. – and I think we could get a great discussion going.

If you’re interested in reading it, pick up a copy, and then share your thoughts in the comments section! If you’ve already read it, please feel free to get the discussion going! Look forward to chatting about the book with everyone!
