Okay, this one's a little...odd. My sister sent me Dark Banquet a couple of weeks ago, and it is a fascinating read, but not for the weak of stomach. It's about all kinds of animals that feed on blood- Vampire bats, bed bugs, chiggers, ticks and vampire finches. Vampire finches! It's a really fun read though, and totally worth buying for the chapter on candiru- a tiny amazon fish that swims up the penises of men who pee in the water and wrecks all kinds of nasty havoc. Makes me happy for the equipment I have, let me tell you.
