Message in a bottle

Quality Paperback Club mailed me this book a bit ago because it was one
of their featured titles for that month. I finished it a few days ago
and I must say I'm happy I bought it. Bottlemania: How Water Went on Sale and Why We Bought It was written by Elizabeth Royte, author of the well received Garbage Land: On the Secret Trail of Trash.
After reading her quite readable, balanced and informative book, I can
find no compelling reasons to ever buy bottled water, at least on a
continual basis anyway. It is expensive, wasteful and ecologically
harmful. More importantly, the stuff out of you home tap is just as
good, if not better. And much, much cheaper.
This book was a pleasant
surprise.
