A Guide to the Birds of East Africa, Nicholas Drayson
If you went strictly by the title, you might not think A Guide to the Birds of East Africa, is your “cup of tea”; but it is, it really is. This is a charming little book that belongs in most libraries. You can safely “gift” this to anyone on your gift list. This is a quirky novel, involving a love story, an odd protagonist, bird watching, and a bet. The cast of characters is memorable; you’ll talk about them with your fellow book readers. Read it, give it, you’ll love it.
