Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, J.K. Rowling

I first read the Sorcerer’s Stone in the fourth grade. All these years later, I still love Harry Potter. As an adult, I have a new-found appreciation for the imagination of Rowling. Think about it, everything we love in the stories is completely made up- muggles, Diagon Alley, Dumbledore, Quidditch- all is created by Rowling. I think this is one of the rare cases where the movie for a book did the book justice by bringing the characters and story to life. Jump on the Hogwarts Express and re-live (or partake for the first time) in the amazing journey of Harry Potter.

The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Michael Pollan

Ever wonder where our food comes from? How it gets from the farm to the grocery store? Best selling author, Michael Pollan answers those two questions and more in great detail. Follow along as his journey takes him from South Dakota, to a week on an organic farm in Virginia, to the woods, hunting and foraging for his dinner. He explores several methods of care, or lack thereof, required to turn raw ingredients into edible food you feed your family. This is an eye-opening read that may change your views on food.
