Just one book this time, and it’s something a little different.
How to Be A Bad Bird Watcher by Simon Barnes [Short Books 2006 trade paperback, new] – non-fiction – the various reviews of this have intrigued me, all of them good, and I kept seeing mention of it here and there, and thinking “I should get that.” So a week or two ago when I came across it again I picked it up.
A review in The Observer said “An amiable mix of memoir, the merits of binoculars, Charles Darwin, laughing gulls and comments on how watching birds can compare with watching English footballers.”
Though I read mostly mystery, science fiction and fantasy, I’ve already put this on the top of the TBR as a break from those genres. Can’t wait. Review here soon.
