Every time I write down a list of books to go after, I lose the darn thing, so I’m posting this one!
- 10% Human: How Your Bodies Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness, Alonna Callen
- Domesticated: Evolution in a Man-Made World, Richard Francis
- Humankind: How Biology and Geography Shape Human Diversity, Alexander Harcourt
- Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Haroni
- The Invaders: How Humans and their Dogs Drove Neaderthals to Extinction, Pat Shipman
- Lone Survivors: How We Came to the the Only Humans on Earth, Chris Stringer
- The Intimate Bond: How Animals Shaped Human History, Brian Fagan
- Into that Silent Sea: Trailblazers of the Space Era, Francis French
- The Social Conquest of Earth, E.O. Wilson
- Moral Tribes: Emotion, Reason, and the Gap Between Us and Them, Joshua Greene
Mostly biology/anthropology, with an odd space book thrown in. Into that Silent Sea is a special one because I’ve been forgetting it for three years now. None of these are immediate reads, though I’ll go after at least one before this year is out. I’m nearly done with my trilogy for the 2015 Reading Challenge, and after that my only real target will be the book with antonyms in the title. After that it’s mopping up, really.
