How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us
By Ed Yong
I loved this book. It is one of those that opens your awareness and full of mesmerizing facts: Insects with ears on their knees, humans that can echolocate, whales that communicate across oceans, birds with hearing that changes depending on the seasons, wasps that know how to feel a cockroach brain and so on. It is full of wonder and will make you “see” the world around you differently.
One of my favorite books this year so far.
“What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe”
by Greg Epstein
This is a positive book and a good introduction to humanism. I found it interesting but a bit boring, maybe because there was too much information and names that were new to me.
by Fred Vargas
I am a big fan of Fred Vargas and I was happy to read a new adventure of Inspector Adamsberg. I enjoyed the inspector way of thinking, the hedgehog, the description of all the food they eat, Retancourt, the potions and superstitions, the politics. I hope she will write another one soon.
And that was it for July. What did you read?
