bookshelves: death
Recommended for: people newly interested in what happens to people after death
Read in March, 2008

I found this book in the young adult section at the public library (while I was pulling a book about Jessica Simpson's "dream wedding," a book telling other women how to have their "dream wedding." Do you think Jessica Simpson is embarrassed about that book now?)

Anyway, this book on the history of burial seems to be written primarily for kids in junior high. It was easy to read and I read it pretty quickly. There was some interesting information in this book, but most of it just scratched the surface of what I wanted to know.
