SO, I don't spend a lot of time with fiction... always hoping to learn about real-life adventures or knowledge... There are exceptions of course, and, above all I'm looking to be enlightened by someone's idea of a good (or even great) read that will have me flailing to regain my footing... That said - I'm a big fan of the http://www.noba-web.org/ and the http://www.johnburroughsassociation.org/literary-awards/about-the-awards
Don't get this!
spiritual, self-help - All set so far!
ScienceandNature's Secret Santa is EllsieFind. Help EllsieFind pick the right book.
libraryperilous: Someone who likes the Burroughs and National Outdoor awards probably would be interested in checking out the UK's similar Wainwright Prize.
The Well-Read Naturalist is a good source for natural history book reviews.
I've been recommending How To Tame a Fox (and Build a Dog) all over the place this year.
One of my all-time favorite books is David Quammen's Monster of God.
I haven't read it yet, but A Lab of One's Own is high on my TBR list. (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 17:05:19 -0500)
