An Entertaining Stiff

Not THAT kind of stiff! Sheesh. You have such a dirty mind!! *grin*

One of my Christmas gifts this year was a gift certificate to Amazon.com. So with great exuberance, I scurried over and bought, among other titles, a book I've been wanting since it first came out in hardcover two years ago: STIFF: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, by Mary Roach.

Before you say "Ew, gross," let me tell you that the book is a New York Times bestseller for good reason. It presents many of the opportunities available exclusively to the recently deceased with droll humor and a sense of respect for those who offer their abandoned earthly vessels for the betterment of humankind.

You can read Chapter One here:

Okay, now you can say "Ew, gross."

Have a safe new year,
