Planet Earth 2008 Challenge

January 1 - December 31, 2008

In honor of the UN International Year of Planet Earth, Sylvia from Classical Bookworm is hosting the Planet Earth 2008 Reading Challenge. Sylvia says:

I thought I'd take the opportunity to brush up on my earth science. I've always been fascinated by geology and associated disciplines, but haven't delved into them much. I did take a geology course in university but it wasn't much of a success because of all the uninspiring memorization that was required. However I find that when geoscience it is presented in the right way, it can be completely fascinating and even mindblowing.

She lists the ten themes for the Year of the Planet and gives some interesting links to jump start your reading. There are no set number of books to read. Go here to learn more.
