CHALLENGE: Science Book Challenge

The annual science challenge hosted Jeff at Scienticity. I get my reminders from Melanie at the Indextrious reader  thanks Melanie!

Rules =
Read 3 (or 3.14!) science books during 2013, then tell us and others about the books you've read--why you liked them or didn't like them--and help spread science literacy.

Jeff states that the general theme this year is  "Science & Culture"

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, from the bookstore or your local library. 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.

Possible Books:
Force of Nature: Ernest Rutherford
Waves by Susan Casey
The Great Influenza by John Barry
something by Mary Roach (Packing for Mars)

Books Read:
1. The Calculus Diaries by Jennifer Ouellette
