I managed to wade through nearly 400 posts from my Google Reader this morning and my eyes are tired! It has been a busy work week for me and so you might notice my Friday Finds list today is shorter than usual.
Mind of A Raven, by Bernd Heinrich as featured on Jeane’s blog Dog Ear Diary. This is a non fiction book and although I prefer fiction, I love to read interesting books about animals. Jeane writes about Heinrich’s book: ‘It’s full of information about the birds’ social interactions, relationships with predators, evidence of problem-solving, how they raise their young, what many of their calls mean, etc.‘ I think I’ll have to check this one out.
Persepolis I and II, by Marjane Satrapi has been recommended by many readers since I posted my review of Maus I & II. I am new to the graphic story form and these two books seem like the next best picks in this genre.
