I generally prefer non-fiction, actually, so it is the reverse for me, going in spurts with fiction.

I like the ecological burial idea. I wonder if that method is available here. I guess I never really looked into the details about cremation and just figured one could be cremated and then you could put those ashes in the ground and plant a tree above. Or out at sea. Although I'm not sure I like the idea of being deep-frozen as opposed to burned. Thinking about it that way makes both seem a little less appealing. ;p

I don't know that the method is actually available here yet, but I hope it will be at some point.

Stiff sounds like something I would love reading (albeit not over lunch!); I'll have to add that to my list.

I go in fits and starts with my reading, but generally have at least one fic and one nonfic book going at the same time.

I'm uncertain what I want done with my remains. Fred's family donates their bodies to Tufts medical school; I don't think I can quite cope with that idea. Cremation is the most likely, for me.

(I think the closest thing to ecological burial in NH, is being buried in a cardboard casket, unenbalmed.)

Stiff is excellent as are all of Mary Roach's books. Highly recommended! After reading this book, I found the idea of donating my body to science much less appealing though I'd still be an organ donor.

you know its peony season over here right now...

OMG, now I'm going to think "maggots" at my next bowl of rice.

So you are going to be composted?

Dunno, but I find it rather morbidly appealing. :)

Even when we chose otherwise, we all end up as compost -some ways just take a little longer. I quite like the idea, we're still helping life to continue. Love, LIzardmom

Catching up! I have Stiff on my list! I have never read any of her books, but now I want to check her out for sure. I have heard about Stiff before and I have not gotten around to reading it. I probably won't for a while, I just ordered a bunch of books that I need to check out for my class. We'll see.
