January Books 26) Proust and the Squid, by Maryanne Wolf

A very readable book about how acquiring the skill of reading actually changes the way the human brain works, which I must admit I skimmed a bit because one bit of brain highlighted in a diagram looks much the same as any other bit of brain to me. Also investigates dyslexia and other reading disorders.
