Book Worm

I can’t believe that I haven’t done this before!
Yesterday, while I was wondering around town having a lovely day off (and being hit round the head with an organic leek) I meandered into the town library and decided to join.
I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of titles and authors they had – back in Devon most of the good authors’ books are always out, and so I came out with a pile of trashy chick lit titles to keep me entertained for the next 3 weeks.
It made me very happy and excited because (as I don’t pay taxes) it is one of the few things in this society that is provided to me absolutely free! So, thanks everyone that pays for my local library – it has given me much joy. 

I also bought this book today (Not on the Label by Felicity Lawrence) which I am excited about reading, although have actually had to do some work at work this afternoon, so disappointingly haven’t started yet.
It’s all about what really goes into our food and how supermarkets exploit the food/people they deal with.
I think it will answer some of the main questions I have about food production…how and why is it so cheap? Who is paying for it down the line?I have read the reviews and it looks pretty gory. Josh doesn’t want me to read it because he knows I’m going to demand we start buying more expensive things, and he believes ignorance is bliss! But I think in this case, it probably isn’t, or at least won’t be in the long term. 
Anyway, come back soon because I will definitely post all the interesting facts about food that I learn!

    Pfff! That's because I'm ace at issuing books!

    "so I came out with a pile of trashy chick lit titles"

    I'm sorry? Good authors and trashy chick lit in the same sentence? I think you'll find Devon Libraries prefer a higher standard of clientele which is why you won't find the particular authors you are after, hahaha : P
