First Book

OK, I'm gonna do a first post here... I'm sure this will change as I futz, but I want to get something up here so I can make sure everything's working before I do more picky futzing.

So! This is a post for a book I finished a week-ish ago.

It's called Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers.



Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, by Mary Roach

Yeah, I know. It sounds nasty. But it was actually a fascinating book. It's all about what happens to bodies that are donated, not people that donate their organs, but the one's that donate their entire body. There's even portions about what happened to bodies hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Granted, it's not for really squeemish people, but if you like CSI or that Dr. G. show on Discovery Health, you'd probably like the book.

So, that's the first book posting here at the Sunidesus website! I'm hoping to use this space to keep track of what I read, and maybe do little reviews of what I like and don't like. And I'm sure the categories will expand as I think of more!

Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul



Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul

I know, "Chicken Soup" books are kinda cheesy, but I love the pet related ones. I read the two earlier one's quite a while ago (Pet Lover's Soul and Cat & Dog Lover's Soul) and this one has been sitting in my bathroom for the last few months. Bathroom books are best when they're bunches of short story type things. That way I don't end up stuck in there when I get all involved in the book.

I just don't get sick of awesome pet stories!

Gimp



Gimp, by Mark Zupan

Auto-biography by Mark Zupan...

If you've seen the documentary Murderball, this is the auto-biography of one of the main guys in the movie. If you haven't seen it... go rent it! It's really good!

Anyway, the book is about his life from childhood on up. It goes through 2004ish I think. Through the events of the documentary at least and just a bit past that.
