Booking Through Thursday is a weekly event that poses a new book-related each week. Here is this week's question:
What’s the most informative book you’ve read recently?
I'd probably have to go with The Link by Colin Tudge, at least if we're going at the question from a purely fact-based knowledge tilt. I certainly learned a great deal about evolution and all the global changes that affect it. Though not the most scientifically rigorous book, for someone without a scientific background (like me!), the book was perfect.
But, on the other hand, I always feel that I learn an enormous amount from great works of fiction, even if it is harder to put my finger on exactly what I learned. Every one of my favorite books has changed me in some way. I do think I would be a different person, if only slightly different, had I never read certain book.
In other words, I think it's hard to say!
