Summer reading: nonfiction reviews

Over the last 15 months I've reviewed or commented on some 40 books on this blog. Here's the nonfiction list--with links to my reviews--of books about sex and marriage, worship and coffee, anxiety and happiness, food and animals ...

OK, so there isn't much of a theme, which must mean I'm a hedgehog and not a fox. If that metaphor is unfamiliar, check out the first review on the fiction list here.

Brown, The Body and Society
Butcher, A Little Daily Wisdom
Coontz, Marriage: A History
Galli, Beyond Smells and Bells
Gill, How Starbucks Saved My Life
Grandin, Animals Make Us Human
Hathaway, The Year of the Goat
Jones, The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food
