This week’s topic isn’t one with which I have a lot of experience. I don’t read a lot of creepy, other-worldly nonfiction and that’s kind of how it strikes me. So, here is as close as I could come. I did not read them this year.

I hated science in school. It bored me silly. But this book, tracing the origin of a cholera epidemic in long-ago London fascinated me. Ghost Map by Steven Johnson.

What is killing the honey bees? Fruitless Fall by Rowan Jacobsen.

Why are some of us Autistic? In A Different Key: The Story of Autism by Caren Zucker was very interesting.

I did not read any of these this year. I hope these meet the criteria for this week!

  1. I think we can do whatever we want to do with these! I struggled a bit with this theme but had to write it in a hurry the day after I got back from holiday. Just been tussling with next week’s too, but I always love reading all the different takes on them!

      1. I do them on Mondays so I was thinking about today’s one. I have drafted week 5 as I add to it as I go along so I can record where I got the ideas from! That one I do at the end of the week, however, so I can see everyone else’s that they have added to their TBRs!
