What book - fiction or non - touched you? Where were you when you read it? Have you bought and given away multiple copies?

8:36pm Trying to explain Eschaton to Sopor

Infinite Jest: A Novel. The caveat being that I'm still stuck in Infinite Summer (about halfway through) due to being side-railed by a shelf full of pregnancy, midwifery, brain development, and parenting books, I still think this is the book that has taken over the most of my subconscious. The slow reveal. The entertainment. The fact that sentences grab me as much as the story. I hope I never finish.

Close second: Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care, because it was the defining moment that convinced us follow the trail of midwives over the doctors.
