I don’t read much during the school year since I feel guilty when I read for pleasure, knowing full well that I have some sort of reading I should be doing instead for classes that I’m taking. That’s why every summer I amass this insanely large reading list.
For example, this is my current reading list of books that I’ve found through various means (friend’s recommendations, reviews, or curiosity of similar subjects):
- The Whole Shebang by Timothy Ferris
- A Walk In The Woods – Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson
- The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey
- Salam Pax – The Clandestine Diary of an Ordinary Iraqi
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck
- The Math Gene by Keith Devlin
- The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut
So the summer is quickly flying by and you might ask, “How many of those have you finished?” Exactly zero! Oh yes. Maybe that has to do with me reading quite a few of them at the same time. It would be nice to finish at least one by the time school starts in a few weeks. We’ll see how that goes!
Anyway, my apologies for the lack of updates. I’ve been quite busy with the outreach program the past 2 weeks. It’s a lot of fun and we’re taking the kids to a lot of really neat places too, such as Capitola (Santa Cruz), Point Reyes, Menlo Park to see the USGS and mueseums as well.
