Reading plan.....what do you all like to read? Answered

I have taken a break from the technical reading and am reading something a wee bit on the ligher side:

I tend to read 2 - 3 books at a time,  switching off from one to the other depending on WHERE I happen to have the time to read.  Currently, I am reading The Varieties of Scientific Experience,  by Carl Sagan.  When at the wash house, or waiting for Ellen to get read to go/do something, I am reading The Enchanted Loom by Robert Jastrow.

Both are fairly easy reads (at least I think so).

A recent goodie was Rivers of London by Ben Aaronvitch.

You should also try China Meiville books.

I am looking, at the moment at possibly acquiring GNOME and becoming a little more acquainted with genetics now that I have dipped my finger into astrophysics :-)

But thanks for the suggestions, I will look into them when I have some extra leisure reading time

Love to prowl the Internet for upcycling, and fiber art articles, and of course Instructables is my 2nd home. What do you like to read Mike?

I've just finished Quintessence: the mystery of the missing mass of the universe. And let's see, The Language of God (on the unravlelling of the human genome and how it demonstrates evolution), and The Language of Life (how to USE that information), etc. Mostly science, I have delved into a lot of other studies too, but I like to read "information" books, not stories or things about the lives of others, I want to discover things....

Oh, just finished The Enchanted Loom also.....next up after the one above.....Surely You'r Joking Mr. Feynman !

ummmmmmmmmm.... I bought a copy of the Teddy Bear's picnic at a thrift store yesterday. Not exactly rocket science, but I was thrilled

Well not EVERYTHING I read is like the above. Have you ever read:
The Velveteen Principles ?   I loved the book, and even bought a copy for a good friend of mine when she moved away.  :-)
