Non-Fiction Selection: Stiff-The Curious Lives of Human... by Mary Roach

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach

Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers some willingly, some unwittingly have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them."

    Wasn't able to finish it in time...I definitely have enjoyed the book so far!

    Just a note -- I would not recommend reading chapters 9 or 10 while eating unless you are on a diet.

      I did try to read a lot of this book while eating dinner, not the best plan. She does such a good job with humor though!
