Science Book Challenge 2009


I can't believe I am joining another reading challenge but I can't resist. I love this button and science. My BS is in Biology with a minor in Secondary Education and my MS is in Biology.
Visit the link below to read all the rules and sign up.
Basically:

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.
My List:
1. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
2. Good Germs, Bad Germs: Health and Survival in a Bacterial World by Jessica Snyder Sachs
3. Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv
Subject to change though. :)

I enjoyed A Walk in the Woods, although there was at least one bit I found really disturbing. Hope you enjoy it!
