Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Currently reading

The Death of Chaos (saga of recluce Book 5)
L.E. Modesitt Jr.
The Stainless Steel Rat Sings the Blues
Harry Harrison

Reading progress update: I've read 180 out of 320 pages.

The Good Gut: Taking Control of Your Weight, Your Mood, and Your Long-term Health - Erica Sonnenburg, Justin Sonnenburg, Andrew Weil

 

Advice that I've gleaned so far:

 

Throw away your hand sanitizer and (outside cold & flu season) maybe don't wash your hands quite so fanatically.

 

Spend some time digging in dirt.  Maybe let some of it stay under your fingernails for a while.

 

If you have the desire, get yourself a pet.  Once again, don't worry about hand washing after touching them quite so much.

 

Much to my delight, don't get too bent out of shape about house cleaning.  A bit of dirt is a good thing.

 

Eat lots of foods that will nourish your inner microbial garden:  fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains.  You know, that stuff that every book tells you to eat.

 

We are too clean and we eat too much junk.
