February Books

It was a short month and it’s a short list, as I read only two books in February.

Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer
I have a long list of fictional and non-fictional books to read covering environmental themes. This book is one of the latter. It took a while to get into, but it was worthwhile and will make a good resource for my environmental and sustainability writing. I’m hoping to get into some climate fiction soon though. Also known as cli-fi, this is a subgenre of science fiction focusing on post-apocalyptic scenarios brought about by climate change disaster…something which is becoming more contemporary reality as opposed to futuristic sci-fi.

The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain
I love love love Bourdain. This collection of essays exemplifies his impassioned, unapologetic, balls-to-the-wall style and I am here for it. I happened upon this book in a secondhand bookstore and read a large chunk of it on the plane – quite apt, considering that a lot of the essays come from his travel writing days. One thousand per cent recommended if you’re into food, travelling,  and excellent writing.

This post is late! March has come and gone, which means that month’s list is coming up soon.
