Best Books of 2009: The Guinea Pig Diaries

It's that time of year again, and your friendly neighborhood librarians are eager to tell you about the best books of 2009. Here is Triste with a review of her favorite book of the year.

I’d recently read The Know It All, wherein A.J. Jacobs obsessively reads the Encyclopedia Britannica in its entirety, so, indulging my obsessiveness, I read his latest - The Guinea Pig Diaries. In documenting a series of “lifestyle experiments” Jacobs tries this, he tries that, he considers anyone’s goofy suggestions, his children are born, his wife suffers and he wittily writes about it all engagingly.

Jacobs’ blog is as entertaining: http://www.ajjacobs.com/content/home.asp
