Beetle Boy's Recommended Reading

I would like to add an extra post today, just recommending a few good wildlife books . . .
I really love reading both fiction and non-fiction, and I have 2 bookcases packed with books. I have several favourite Natural History books. I would like to provide links to where you can get such books here, so that you can enjoy them as much as I do!

Nick Baker's Bug Zoo by Nick Baker: A really excellent book recommended for younger readers! It provides good information on how to keep insects in captivity for study - but you must release them after a while, though! To buy it on Amazon, click on the title.

A Student's Guide To The Seashore by J.D Fish & S. Fish: For more advanced readers, this is a brilliant book. It is very in-depth, and provides lots of diagrams and information. Highly recommended for those wanting to study marine life seriously.

RSPB Handbook Of The Seashore by Maya Plass: This is a great book, I love mine as it is signed by the author and brilliant Marine Biologist, Maya Plass! It covers both plants and animals, and is a great guide.

Chris Packham's Back Garden Nature Reserve by Chris Packham: This is a book that I don't use much, though it is very good. It has information on birds, insects, and ponds - and how to attract these species into your own Back Garden Nature Reserve!

Collins Pocket Guide To Freshwater Life Of Britain And Northern Europe by Malcolm Greenhalgh and Denys Ovenden: I got this book as a Christmas present, and I love it. Lovely drawings, highly recommended. 

Reader's Digest Field Guide To The Butterflies & Other Insects Of Britain by Reader's Digest: A really, really good book - a must for any butterfly lover! 

Collins Field Guide To Insects Of Britain And Northern Europe (3rd Edition) by Michael Chinery: A quite complex book for more advanced readers. Includes numerous good diagrams, and covers identification, classification, and more!

My Family & Other Animals by Gerald Durrell:  This is a great book that tells the true story of Gerald growing up on an island called Corfu. With snakes in the bath and scorpions on the dinner table, any nature enthusiast will love this book.

If I think of more books, then I'll add them in another post!
