|Books, chairs, and lamps = happiness|
So, imagine my surprise at finding a veritable treasure trove in our "New Books" section last week. As I strolled by, I couldn't help scooping up everything I laid my eyes on.
Carl Zimmer's A Planet of Viruses was there. As was Much Ado About (Practically) Nothing, a book about the history of noble gases, by David Fisher. A few rows down, I encountered How I Killed Pluto (And Why it Had it Coming) by Mike Brown, and one row to my right was Rob Dunn's The Wild Life of Our Bodies: Predators, Parasites, and Partners that Shape Who We Are Today. Toss in the obligatory Feynman biographies, and a book or two about popular physics, and I was in science reading heaven.
Looks like a long weekend of coffee and reading (and maybe a game) for me. Enjoy, everyone!
