Monday Musings, August 25
In an earlier Monday Musings post, I talked about getting on a Tudor historical fiction kick. A bit problematic, since I review science fiction and fantasy! Well, now I’m on a non-fiction kick. I’ve been reading The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean. It’s a book about the periodic table and the craziness that the science field went through while creating it. It’s a very interesting history of chemistry and physics, put in terms that anybody can understand. I’ve also been eying one of his other books, The Violinist’s Thumb (about genetics) and a book about the Donner party.
At least I’m only a few books behind of where I should be with my reviewing, though. That’s something.
Short and sweet today. I’m not feeling very wordy at the moment. Probably comes from all that science I stuffed in my head over lunch!
