Read back through this thread to see that I'd started Omnivore's Dilemma back in '07. Never got into it then, but hauled it with me last summer to a 6-week stay in Antwerp. Not knowing anybody does wonders for my reading focus, so I figured that'd be my best shot at making it through. And I did read it straight through, and really enjoyed it. I left it in the apartment, though, when I decamped. Great book, but not worth hauling back over the Atlantic.
Polished off two other NF books in Antwerp: First, The Family that Never Sleeps, a fascinating and chilling study of fatal family familial insomnia. Unfortunate side effect: I'll probably never again order the venison at Tornado (FFFI is a prion disease). Left that one in the apartment, too.
Then, Passionate Minds: The Great Love Affair of the Enlightenment, about Voltaire and scientist Emilie du Châtelet. Brought that one home with me. We never have extended-stay houseguests, but if we did, that'd be one of the books I'd offer on the bedside table.
Just got the lovely Radioactive: A Tale of Love and Fallout, an illustrated biography of Marie and Pierre Curie. Plan to dive in this afternoon.
