American Cereal

There’s a new book out about cereal, and it looks cereal-ously good. No, but in all cereal-ousness, it’s about the history of cereal, and you’d have to be a [ce]real breakfast Grinch to not at least be stirred by the picture of E.T., the cereal (slide No. 2).

The Great American Cereal Book: How Breakfast Got Its Crunch* is itself smaller than a box of cereal, and costs $12.99 on Amazon, where it currently comes in at No. 16 in books about breakfast, although that number will no doubt rocket upward in the coming hours. Stay tuned — this is the first in a cereal-ies about books covering meals. Not really, but remember those amazing pictures of food?

*… [Back]! Get it, breakfast!
