I almost did not sit down to compile this list but in an effort to curb my innate habit to start a project with gusto and then taper off the amount of effort I put into it, I decided I ought to see this month through by trying to hit all the goals of the four weeks.
Week 3: (Nov. 11 to 15) – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert (Katie @ Doing Dewey): Three ways to join in this week! You can either share three or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).
My favourite type(s) of non-fiction is one that is filled with interesting factoids or a different way of viewing the seemingly mundane, which help bolster any flagging conversation between like-minded individuals. I am always on the lookout for such books. So I decided to be both the expert and ask other experts for books that fulfil the criteria. Since I already harped on Superlative: The Biology of Extremes by Matthew D. LaPlante in both of the participating posts earlier this month, I will not include it here.
3)Growth and introductions to topics from a personal angle
As mentioned earlier, I would also like to ask the experts out there who can suggest books in this wide umbrella of options that (try as I might) I am always unable to narrow into a single focus.
