Is a great intro to primatology, our relationship with chimps AND bonobos, and how other primates are a great tool to learn about ourselves as homo sapiens. If you are at all interested in our evolutionary cousins, READ THIS! And bonobos are so cool! Teach/learn more about them, not just chimps!

Is my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK! It has so much going  on that makes it perfection: feminist utopia/equality, science fiction, time-travel, alternative futures. ERHMAGAHD! Connie and her travels also question the treatment of those with mental illness and creates conversations that are so important! AND men can breastfeed! YES HUMANS!

Imagine waking up hungover with a pair of horns on your head and the ability to hear people's inner demons speak to you upon touch (it's my typical Sunday morning, dunno about you). This pulpy page-turner will appeal to the devil in all of us, and once you pick it up you won't be able to resist the temptation to finish it all in one night.
