Wow, what an eye opener and a punch in the stomach! L’Enfer numérique: Voyage au bout d’un Like [Digital Hell: The Inner Workings of a “Like”] is about everything digital, the impact on our planet, and where our world is going. It covers the environment, geopolitics, and ultimately, our civilization.
Actually a very scary book.
I usually don’t read horror fiction, but I got my share of horror in this nonfiction book.

Guide to Healing the Earth

Tom Brown’s Guide to Healing the Earth:
US release date: November 26, by Berkley Books
I won it in a giveaway organized by Penguin Random House – thank you!

Even though nature is extremely important in my life, I have never read any book by Tom Brown. So I am curious,plus he seems to offer some concrete ideas.
AND, look at this gorgeous cover!
I’ll read this probably early November.
