    Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer (author of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close). This book is life changing.

  • Arena Fitness

    You probably don't want to read this book. It's not pleasant. But, I think you should at least know where your meat is coming from. The meat we eat is....just not good for us. The way it's raised, housed, fed, medicated, slaughtered, processed and packaged is unclean, unsanitary, and simply can't make for healthy food. If you're going to eat meat, at least try to find sources that are not of the factory farming ilk.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer

Foer spent his teenage and college years oscillating between carnivore and vegetarian. As he became a father, he kept returning to two questions: Why do we eat animals? And would we eat them if we knew how they got on our plates? Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, and his own undercover detective work, the book explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth.

Everything Is Illuminated: A Novel by Jonathan Safran Foer- great read....and the movie is great, too!

"There won't be enough pages in this book for me to tell you what I need to tell you, I could write smaller, I could slice the pages down their edges to make two pages, I could write over my own writing, but then what?"

Extremely Loud Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer....my next read!
