Non-Fiction

Every now and then, non-fiction makes it into my reading list. Usually its biology, animal or biography. I won’t torture you by including my textbooks. Favorite authors by far are David Quammen for science, and Patricia McConnell for dog training. I’ve read/own many of their books, but am not doing reviews until I re-read.
