Rebecca | 215 comments Readers, you may not know this about me, but I LOVE science. If there is a nature/space documentary that I find I haven’t watched, I have to reevaluate my weekend plans. While the majority of us may not be scientists, many of us are likely interested in science.

With the recent detection of gravitational waves , I thought it might be fun for this month’s reading challenge to read a book about science. If the natural sciences are your thing, you’ll probably find something interesting in the 500’s of our nonfiction section; some of my favorite Dewey numbers live there. I think I’m going to read Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything.
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

Stop by one of the Information Kiosks with something that interests you and we’ll match you to an interesting title.

I'm glad we were able to find a book that connects to the fiction that you enjoy!

Kay Defreese | 1 comments I see a couple of people like the forensic science books. I really enjoyed it last year when the Bone Lady did the talk at the library. After her talk I checked every one of her books out of our library.

If you like fiction that has a forensic scientist in it check out Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey. It kept me up late at night turning pages.
