What I Will Be Reading #20

I’ve got a new list of books to add to my reading list from a variety of sources that I’ve accumulated over time. Thought I’d share them with you tonight.

First up, Make: The Annotated Build-It-Yourself Science Laboratory: Build Over 200 Pieces of Science Equipment! by Raymond E. Barrett and Windell H. Oskay from this GeekMom post. This book was a no-brainer for me. I love science. I love to do science. And with homeschooling the kids, I need good ways to include hands on science as they go through school. This book looks like it will not only tell me how to assemble a fully functional science lab, but provide experiments to use all that equipment. I’m getting it sooner rather than later.

Next up is Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson mentioned as awesome by The Modern Mrs. Darcy and George R. R. Martin in the same week. Guess it’s a sign and I should add it to my list. Besides, I want to expand my nonfiction into something besides just science, and I do find some of the historical nonfiction absolutely fascinating.

On the same post of George R. R. Martin, he also mentioned that Ernest Cline has a new book coming out: Armada: A Novel. I loved his first book, Ready Player One, so of course I’ll try the next one.

Finally, is Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free by Hector Tobar because of an Ideas from CBC Radio podcast interview with the author. The whole story of how the men were rescued sounded fascinating, so onto the list the book goes.

That’s what I’ve got this week – do you have anything you’d recommend? Put it in the comments!
