Last week I was having dinner with my old college friend Tom. I asked him the question. He was reading three books, two were history books, one was about the history of the borders of U.S. states (imagine anyone writing about that!). The third one, Tom hadn’t figured out what it was about yet, but he’ll get back to me. I was disappointed there were no science titles in the mix, but at least he was reading.
He naturally asked me the question back. I thought, and I thought. I always have so many things I’m reading concurrently. I narrowed it down to “Introduction to Modern Astrophysics,” and “Pulsar Astronomy.” But in addition to that, I’m always reading Physics Today, Nature, Scientific American, Notices of the American Mathematical Society, and a multitude of individual research papers. As a treat, every few months I’ll start up a scientific fiction book.
So let’s take a poll. This will be the first of many polls we’ll take here on the Science Lifestyle blog. Make sure you get your vote in!
