Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World

Crazy as it sounds, it's a fascinating book about how cod fishing impacted everything from the American Revolution to Basque Independence movements to the Caribbean slave trade. Good, quick read if you are into history...or good seafood!

As everyone knows rents right now are super low. My current apartment in other units is going for about 30% less than what I'm paying. I've been in the same unit for 3 years but can't justify paying as much as I am. I also don't want to move. Anyone think I can drop the rent by 30% I've never been able to get that low. But we've never had a situation like this.
