Sorry about posting this halfway to March, things have been hectic here. Occupational Therapy studies have kept me busy while trying to finish writing my third book. Also, sidenote: a happy writer here. My books are selling almost every day!
It wasn’t straightforward to choose the top 3 books I read last month. I chose these because they made me wonder about the world we live in the most.
- Hallucinations by Oliver Sacks. This was a good book. It made me rethink how I understand hallucinations, art, the stories we tell, drugs, everything. If you haven’t read the book, definitely go for it.
- The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell. Not only is this book entertaining with its snarky tone, but it was also a walk in the memorylane. Making me think back those days I worked at a bookshop and what I learned about the book industry there. But you don’t have to have worked in a bookshop to appreciate this book. The daily life on Shaun Bythell and his thoughts about customers and Amazon, make you laugh and think.
- Other Minds: The Octopus and the Evolution of Intelligent Life by Peter Godfrey-Smith. I don’t think this is the best book out there about Octopi’s intelligence and consciousness, but anything with an octopus in it, I’m sold. This book was informative, interesting, but also a bit of a disappointment when it came to structure and argumentation. Still, I loved it.
Thank you for reading! Have a bookish day ❤
