While I’ve been sick here I’ve read three books that I highly recommend.

Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America
The author enters the minimum-wage work force to see for herself how the people who have to work in that sector fair. Makes me grateful that when I was working in restaurants I was living with parents and had a support network.

Fast Food Nation
The fast food industry is evil. So evil. The one phrase that sums it up: There is shit in the meat. Vegetarians, I totally understand where your’re coming from. I’ll try never to eat fast food again. I say try because mmmmm….. burger.

And finally, The Da Vinci Code
I read it in about a day straight through. Totally awesome. My Dad and siblings weren’t kidding.
