Kersplash! It’s summer, and I think I’m ready to jump right in and name my favorite nonfiction book for this year. True, it’s only summer, just the second of four seasons of reading in my year. Yet I don’t want to wait to share this particular book with other readers, and in particular, those who also enjoy spending time in nature and learning more about it.
Mixed in with many fiction books on my reading list are non-fiction titles that draw my attention. I usually read several books at a time, interchanging them based on my interest that day. Over the course of the summer, I read several great non-fiction books and wanted to share my favorites.
It's happening: the days are getting shorter, the air is getting colder and each new weather forecast brings the possibility of snow. Winter is upon us. For many Coloradans, this means it's time to break out the skis and snowboards, but for athletically challenged bookworms (read: nerds) like myself, winter provides a great excuse to curl up out of the cold and do one thing: read, read, read. So when many of my friends are headed to the slopes, I'm heading to the couch with a book, a hot beverage and a couple of dogs in tow.
