Science Book Challenge

Is anybody saying enough challenges yet? I say - the more I join, the more varied my reading picks will be, and if I don't finish? so? I will have read more than I would have had I NOT joined!

SO - another challenge. This one is to read 3 science (including engineering, mathematics, and technology) books in 2009 and share my thoughts with others.

The 2009 Science-Book Challenge
Read at least three nonfiction books in 2009 related somehow to the theme "Nature's Wonders". Your books should have something to do with science, scientists, how science operates, or science's relationship with its surrounding culture. Your books might be popularizations of science, they might be histories, they might be biographies, they might be anthologies; they can be recent titles or older books. We take a very broad view of what makes for interesting and informative science reading.
After you've read a book, write a short note about it, giving your opinion of the book. What goes in the note? The things you would tell a friend if you wanted to convince your friend to read it--or avoid it. Naturally, you can read some of the existing Book Notes for ideas. You might like to read our Book-note ratings for ideas about how to evaluate your books.
Don't worry if you find that you've read a book someone else has also read; we welcome multiple notes on one title.
Get your book note to us and we'll post it with the other notes in our Book Note section. Use the book-note form or the comment form to get in touch with us.
Tell other people about the Science-Book Challenge: http://ArsHermeneutica.org/besieged/Science-Book_Challenge_2009. This is also where you should go to sign up.
