Waiting on Wednesday ~ Effin’ Birds by Aaron Reynolds
A warm welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday! Happy Wednesday, we are almost at the weekend (and my birthday, eep).
For today a book that is already out, but one I didn’t know about until this year! I just love books about nature and the title of this one? Had me giggling so much. And then I just saw the cover and read the blurb and knew that I had to have this book! Birds. Randomness. Silliness. Tons of humour. Sign me up!
It is on the first page of my Goodreads OMG-need-to-buy-shelves, so kinda hoping that maybe I will be getting it for my birthday (told my hubby that all 30 books on the first page were my MUST HAVES). And otherwise I will be getting it soon after!
Effin’ Birds is a new volume in the grand and noble profession of nature writing and bird identification. This book contains more than 150 pages crammed full of classic, monochrome plumage art paired with the delightful but dirty aphorisms (think “I’m going to need more booze to deal with this week”) that made the Effin’ Birds Twitter feed a household name. Also included in its full, Technicolor glory is John James Audubon’s most beautiful work matched with modern life advice. Including never-before-seen birds, insults, and field notes.
