There's no question that fiction far outweighs nonfiction on my TBR shelf. My nonfiction titles usually center on linguistics, travel, biography, and science--especially animals and physics (which I'm rubbish at, but I keep trying anyway). I'm very excited to finally read Meg Daley Olmert's Made for Each Other: The Biology of the Human-Animal Bond (Da Capo, 2009), which has been sitting on my TBR shelf for at least a couple of years now. I don't know why it's taken me so long to get around to a book that examines the connection between us and the other animals. Sounds fascinating!
In one of those delectably synergistic books that tie together threads of science, history, and everyday life, Olmert explains the evolutionary processes behind what E. O. Wilson calls biophilia, our love and need for animals.... More proof of the astonishing intricacy of life’s interconnectivity.Who's with me? Besides Sawyer the dog (pictured above), I mean.
That's right: I've committed to reading all the books on my TBR Shelf this year--and blogging them! Click here to read the reviews I've posted so far.
