The Drunken Botanist (2013)
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This book is very compartmentalized, historical, and sounds delicious! It is, however, very hard to read like a book. Stewart hits all the sorts of things that go into alcoholic drinks, the pitfalls, the dangers, and the substitutions possible. However, reading several paragra...
Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities (2009)
3.8 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is a neat little book with lots of great information packed in there on a unique stock of paper containing intricate little drawings to illustrate the various plants and the crimes they were involved in. Although there were lots of great illustrations, there simply weren't ...

review 1: Amy Stewart usually writes volumes about poisonous plants, worms or the like. This novel presupposes The Gizmo, a more fully accepted and capable Kindle that totally supplants hard copy books. The bookstore of the title is in Humboldt County, CA, and has long ago used book sales...

review 1: The book has one slightly worried about the possible demise of the printed page, but it is all a bit of a lark. It would have benefitted from rigorous editing. There is some irritating sloppiness which made me consider the possibility of 2 stars only, but the plot was interesting...
Zbrodnie robali. Wesz, która pokonała armię Napoleona, i inne diaboliczne insekty (2012)

review 1: Wicked Bugs is interesting and fun to read. This was an unusual pick for me as almost everything I read is fiction or poetry. Because of my typical taste in books, I kept wanting Wicked Bugs to go more in-depth with personal accounts of what it's like to interact with these bugs....
