Read: 32 Nature Books to Brighten Your Day

Posted by

I recently wrote about six nature books to read. This triggered a great Twitter chat about people’s favourite nature reads. Soon, people had shared 32 nature book recommendations.

It seemed a useful list so here it is. There are books for all ages, from vintage classics to modern fiction and beyond. Great for Christmas gifts for nature lovers, or stocking up on autumn books to bring the outdoors in. (They’re in random order rather than any form of chart).
