Anyone need a reprieve from serious books next month?
Here’s what I have lined up for our next couple of reading selections:
- Ghost: A Novel by Alan Lightman.
- Irreligion: A Mathematician Explains Why the Arguments for God Just Don’t Add Up by John Allen Paulos.
Here’s what I’d like to add as a non-serious interlude:
- How to Fossilize Your Hamster: And Other Amazing Experiments for the Armchair Scientist by Mick O’Hare.
We’ll discuss science communication and popularization, as well as ideas for getting kids interested in science (although this is not a kid’s book — it includes boozy science projects!). Plus we’ll just have fun.
I’d like March to be a light reading month… Any objections?
