Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation

By Olivia Judson

A great review of reproductive strategies in mostly animals, but also plants, fungi, and some obscure creatures. Very interesting, and could be used as a starting point for activities in the classroom, as well as provide lots of anecdotes. Need to get the book! [297 pp. (235 on are notes and literature)]

By Paul Auster

I read it before, many years ago, in Hebrew. It's one of those books that pass well both in Hebrew and English. I guess it's because the Hebrew translation was done well. (Other times, when the book isn't very good in English it's because it was poorly translated from some other language.) Anyway, not much to say - I like Paul Auster, and I wasn't disappointed. [274 pp.]
