- A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
- The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
- Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds by Bernd Heinrich
You’ve probably heard of the first two and the third was a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year (click here to read David Quammen’s review titled “Bird Brains” and published August 1, 1999). Heinrich, who I am not familiar with, is a well known science writer who focuses on animals.
Lately, I’ve been feeling like it would be good to re-read some of the classics so expect to see me read books like Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe this summer.
