February reads

This month of reading has been probably been the best since I started the blog.  I hit a streak of very good books, all of which I'd recommend.  It's difficult picking a book of the month with three five star reads in the mix (and thankfully I'm still a few pages from the end of White Dog by Peter Temple, otherwise I'd have more of a headache).  I'm going to give it as a tie between Hard Bite and The Sea Detective.  Beyond being excellent reads, they both also managed to be fresh and original.

Six Bad Things by Charlie Huston ****
Too Big to Know by David Weinberger ***.5
In Search of Klingsor by Jorgi Volpi ****
Information: A Very Short Introduction by Luciano Floridi ****
The Sea Detective by Mark Douglas-Home *****
Piggyback by Tom Pitts ****.5
