    Jun 28 2012: Not sure how many I've read - I start many books, certainly more than I finish, too old to bother with something that doesn't hold my interest - but the last one that really stayed with me was The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi.

It got me interested in seed banks and as a result translated Cary Fowler: One seed at a time, protecting the future of food and Jonathan Drori: Why we're storing billions of seeds.
