Alexander Von Humboldt: How the Most Famous Scientist of the Romantic Age Found the Soul of Nature

Alexander von Humboldt by Maren Meinhardt

Published July 1, 2019, book from BlueBridge

Scientist and explorer. From Humboldt Redwoods State Park in California to Humboldthain park in Berlin, from South America’s Humboldt Current to Greenland’s Humboldt Glacier, numerous places, plants, and animals around the world are named after him. Nature and travel, my favorite topics. 

The Girl Who Reads on the Metro by Christine Feret-Fleury, October 8, 2019, Flatiron Books

Juliet, a dedicated book lover, is hired as a passeur, one who takes used books out into the world and matches them with likely readers.  My lovely library find. 

What books are you enjoying this week?

I have the Girl Who Reads on the Metro -- I meant to read it last week in Maine, but life got in the way. Maybe this weekend.

Kathy Martin said...

Both books sound interesting. I'm most curious about the biography of Humboldt. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
