Book Love: The Manatee Scientists

Got some reading in this week, though mostly all books for grown-ups:

LOST IN SHANGRI-LA (400 pages)

AUTHOR 101 (256 pages)


I also read The Manatee Scientists (Sitf): The Science of Saving the Vulnerable (Scientists in the Field)

The Manatee Scientists (Sitf): The Science of Saving the Vulnerable by Peter Lourie (80 pages)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s part of the “Scientists in the Field” series. Wow! If you love animals, this is a great nonfiction series to look for. Every time I read one of these books, I am ready to jump on a plane and fly off to some place in the world to help out these scientists and animals.
