Science Reading Challenge 2010

I participated in this challenge last year but did not complete it. I did enjoy it so I am signing up for 2010 and hopefully will manage my time better. Here is the link for more information and to sign up:
http://scienticity.net/wiki/Science_Book_Challenge_2010
The Basic Rules:
1.Read at least three nonfiction books in 2010 related to the theme "Nature & Science". Your books should have something to do with science, scientists, how science operates, or the relationship of science with our 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, looking for perspectives on science as part of culture and history.
2. After you've read a book, write a short note about it giving your opinions of the book. Tell us what you'd 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; we include ratings with every book note.

3. 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.

4. Spread the scienticity and tell other people about the Science Book Challenge: http://scienticity.net/wiki/Science_Book_Challenge.
My Tentative List:
1. The Pluto Files by Neil de Grasse Tyson
2. The Secret Life of Germs by Philip Tierno Jr. Phd (I am a little scared because I am already a little germophoic)
3. This Is Your Brain in Love by Dr. Earl Henslin
4. A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith Based Decisions by Katherine Hayhoe and Andrew Farley
