The Science Book Challenge 2009

January 1 - December 31, 2009

Jeff at Bearcastle Blog is hosting the Science Book Challenge again. The 2009 challenge encourages readers to read three science books related somehow to the theme "Nature's Wonders" and then share your thoughts about the books with others. Jeff writes:
Reading about science--by which we mean to include engineering, mathematics, and technology, too--is fun and rewarding. We encourage others to read about science, and help potential readers find books that they will enjoy and profit from reading, by publishing our Book Notes, which are written by Ars Hermeneutica employees, volunteers, and friends.

We're looking for science-book readers to help us help other science-book readers by sharing their own opinions about the science books they've read.

Books chosen for the challenge 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."

Go to the official challenge site to sign up and read more about the challenge.
