The February book is
The Truth About Animals: Stoned Sloths, Lovelorn Hippos, and other Tales from the
Wild Side of Wildlife
by Lucy Cooke. You've probably never considered
if moose get drunk, or worker ants lay about. They do -- and that's just for starters.
In this book, Lucy Cooke lays bare the secret -- and often hilarious -- habits
of the animal kingdom.

The March book is
The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder by David Grann.
On January 28, 1742, a ramshackle vessel of patched-together wood and cloth washed
up on the coast of Brazil. Inside were thirty emaciated men, barely alive, and
they had an extraordinary tale to tell. The men, after being marooned for months
and facing starvation, built the flimsy craft and sailed for more than a hundred
days, traversing 2500 miles of storm-wracked seas. They were greeted as heroes.
