The next thing to put on your reading list

The nice thing about working at Wend is that I get to read some pretty interesting books. This is the one I am currently working on and I must say that it’s proving to be a pretty compelling read. Where do I begin? Bottled water… ok, it’s what I drank all through Asia as to not get sick, but in the US I think it’s one of the most appalling inventions. And it’s not just because of the plastic. As author Elizabeth Royte points out in the opening chapter of Bottlemania: How water went on sale and why we bought it, there’s a moral question at play: should private companies be profiting off of a public resource? So read the book and come up with your own conclusions.
