I read this for class this semester. I enjoyed the book so much I got a copy to share specifically :)

The perfect fiction companion to The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food

Now that Michael Pollan's New York Times bestsellers have opened up a national dialogue about where food really comes from, conscientious readers everywhere will want to devour My Year of Meats. When documentarian Jane Takagi-Little finally lands a job producing a Japanese television show that just happens to be sponsored by the American meat-exporting industry, she begins to uncover some unsavory truths about love, fertility, and a very dangerous hormone called DES. A modern-day take on Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, veteran filmmaker Ruth Ozeki's novel has been hailed as "rare and provocative" (USA Today) and "up-to-the-minute" (Chicago Tribune).

I liked that the author brought up many different subjects, though a couple of them were very disturbing. I may not be eating a hamburger for a long time.

I put the book at the Little Free Library #2266 in Oak Park, Illinois USA.

A follow-up to my July 10th entry: I've mentioned the book to at least 3 people in the last week. I went to check the Little Free Library to see if the book was still there (no surprise, it wasn't) to give it to someone who seemed really interested in it. By the way, I haven't had a hamburger yet.
