Book 31: 10 Plants that Shook the World by Gillian Richardson
This was a fascinating non-fiction book about ten plants that have majorly affected our lives and the economies of our countries. The book highlights such plants as papyrus, tea, sugarcane and cotton and how those plants became big business, improving our lives and creating products the we could not imagine living without now.
