Adam | 87 comments 12x12 in 2012 Challenge

This sounds really intense and fun. I wish I had as many Steam Punk books as Mad Scientist.. but there's no way I can make such a category. Anyway... I'm going to use this as my save "spot". I doubt I'll read 144... but it will be interesting to try! I won't decide yet what I want to read, as my choices will be quite whimsical throughout the year. Just need to think of two more categories...

1. Mathematics
1. The Man Who Loved Only Numbers: The Story of Paul Erdös and the Search for Mathematical Truth by Paul Hoffman
2. Introduction to Topology: Third Edition by Bert Mendelson
3. The Saga of Mathematics: A Brief History by Lewinter and Widulski
4. Schaum's Outline of Advanced Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists
5. I Want to Be a Mathematician: An Automathography by Paul Halmos
6. Naive Set Theory by Paul Halmos
