Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert

hosted by Rennie of What’s Nonfiction

Three ways to join in this week!
You can either share 3 or more books
on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert),
you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic
that you have been dying to read (ask the expert),
or you can create your own list of books
on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).

This year, two of the nonfiction books I have read are about Japan.
I would love to go there one day, plus I have a couple of friends living there, which would help navigate in a country with a totally different language.
Alas, I’m too old to learn Japanese.
And with Covid and other things, I will probably never be able to visit.

So, it’s the perfect time to ask experts here about Japan.
Please share with me any nonfiction title you have read about Japan:
its landscapes, birds, history, culture, food, whatever, I want them all!

I was very impressed by Helen MacDonald’s previous book, H is for Hawk, even though I never took time to write a full review back then.
As I received Vesper Flights through Libro.fm (check for ways to get free audiobooks and support independent bookstores – excellent app!), here is my humble effort to convince you to listen to this one.

I tend to like more and more nonfiction books for kids. It’s a great way to learn through nice and smartly designed volumes. In other words, they are just as perfect for adults, not just for 9-12 year olds! The Fascinating Animal Book for Kids: 500 Wild Facts totally fits the description.
