I'd heard about Alex and Dr Pepperberg on a podcast, and wanted more detail. This is fascinating and moving.

Great fun. Naomi laughed her head off while we read it. Challenging for her, beacause it's in "joined up" writing.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
“But why, why, why can't people just say what they mean?”

Very good. Especially the "shifting baseline" stuff, and the questions around how we decide what version of "nature" we choose to protect.

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget—we will return.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

C.S. Lewis
“I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia.”
C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair

Winston S. Churchill
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
Winston S. Churchill

We read to know we're not alone.
“We read to know we're not alone.”
William Nicholson, Shadowlands

Samuel Beckett
“All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho
