We have had it before. Last December to be exact, group read thread here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/7...

Steve wrote: "How about Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic by David Quammen? I've heard some fantastic reviews and really want to read it myself!"
We had it just last month, November. Group read thread here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...
Though no one shared anything :/

Not really any rules against rereads, but I think we prefer moving onwards to new books.

Sorry. I didn't realize that one had already been done by the group. :P

Marne How about Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle? Its been getting great reviews and is now out in paperback.


message 7: by Eric (new)

Eric (edillalo) I really enjoyed Suburban Safari: A Year on the Lawn, though it isn't as heavy on the science side.


message 8: by Kelsey (new)

Kelsey Springer (gloom) My vote is for Pleasurable Kingdom: Animals and the Nature of Feeling Good. I am also very interested in reading Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle, but since Your Inner Fish was just read for this month, maybe another evolution-centered book could be saved for a different time.

David | 1 comments I'm also voting for "Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle." It looks neat!


message 10: by Jeffrey (new)

Jeffrey P. | 1 comments Humbly author suggested: Angst: Origins of Anxiety and Depression This is a popular non-fiction book with the novel theory that anxiety and depression evolved from ancient herd instincts. Real scientific theory combined with cartoons & humor.
