babble book club: 'Salt: A World History'

Up next: 'Salt: A World History' by Mark Kurlansky with a final discussion date of March 21 at 2pm EST where more users will be online to discuss the book in real time, but of course, conversation and discussion is encouraged throughout the reading time.

This book is a bit of a departure for the bbc, or at least according to the cover. Why? Well, it's about salt. Not politics, not CanLit, not activism, but salt. But of course, in the hands of a good writer, who knows what the wonderful topic, and seasoning, salt will bring us!

Here's a snippet of the summary:
