When I was unpacking my books to load up my bookshelf in my new place, I realized just how many academic books I've acquired over the years. Don't get me wrong, I love them all and treasure them (the ones that didn't end up sold at the school's buyback...girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!) but now that I've graduated, I am really enjoying reading for FUN again!
I've always loved non-fiction and historical-fiction books so when I was trying to start a list of science-y books for our GoodReads booklist, it was pretty easy to find some that interested me even though I'm not the uber-science geek in the family. Part of my undergrad research was on brain death and bioethics so I picked some related titles that I wanted to read while in school but didn't have time for (Spook by Mary Roach & The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot). Others, like Sam Kean's Disappearing Spoon, Julie has read and LOVED! The others look really fascinating and have great reviews! I think it's time to head to the library!
We'd love some more recommendations to add to the list so please share!
