Books & Movies

I like to read, and unsurprisingly, I like to read about animals. An heck, watch a lot of Documentaries too!
A lot of what I read and watch influences what types of animals that I write about, so I think it's only right to talk about some of these titles as I finish them and maybe pass some recommendations on to others.
And hey, if you have any recommendations for me, I'd absolutely love to hear them!
