Convince Us: Stiff

2007_07_stiff.jpgWe didn't get a lot of suggestions this go around, which is okay because as soon as we saw Stiff by Mary Roach recommended, we were sold. We remembered seeing it in the bokstore and being grossed out/intrigued by the dead feet and wanting to read it, so we're glad you guys reminded us about it. Hopefully the insides will be as interesting as the outside.

We were very tempted to reread Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, with the fantastic Ralph Steadman cover, but really, we need less reasons to take off on a drug-addled roadtrip, not more.

Read along with us for the month, and hopefully we'll all meet some new, morbid friends.
