The Science and Inquiry group is reading The Radium Girls in March. Maybe we want to leave it out of the poll, to ensure that we are are not reading the same book as the other group.

One day left to vote on the poll. We need a tie breaker vote, or I will have to change my vote. Unless you want 2 books to read in March.

We got a tie. I could switch my vote, toss a coin, pick my favorite, or have 2 books to read. I will go with 2 books.

For March our books are:
The Fabric of the Cosmos Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene and Creation How Science Is Reinventing Life Itself by Adam Rutherford

Read one or the other or both.

We got 5 votes, one more than last month, which is slightly better than me telling you what to read.
