uosɯɐS  (maece) | 3 comments What non-fiction book are you reading right now? (or recently finished).

I'm reading "Time Reborn" by physicist Lee Smolin. It is part physics and part philosophy, about how our attachment to "timeless truth" is a problem both in physics and for our daily lives. He seeks to somehow apply evolutionary ideas to the laws of physics.

Alana (alanasbooks) I read Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln over the summer. Fascinating stuff! With non-fiction I have to slow down and pay more attention but I always feel so much more rewarded when I'm done.

Kristin (savannahjan) | 4 comments I just finished reading "Just Mercy." Wow. It was powerful. It is about Bryan Stevenson's quest to save people wrongly accused on death row. He tells about a lot of his clients. It is very well-written. I definitely recommend it.
