fruits and books

Hi! Here you will find a  list of the most mouth-watering materials I’ve come across in my research – anything from academic books and peer-reviewed articles to eye-opening documentaries as well as simply good-to know-kind of stuff.  If the title is clickable it will take you to my review of that specific material – I will aim to have that for all resources listed. Hope you’ll find the section useful and make sure you come back as the page will be updated regularly.
