      It’s true! It could be fun to read books that cover different periods in the history of science, like the one you reviewed, and then finish up with some books about modern science.

    I finally have a non-fiction review up this week! :) Some great finds and releases this week – I’m especially excited for The Grapes of Math; anything with a math pun is bound to be either very cheesy (which I like) or very math-heavy (which I also like). The science non-fiction recs are also wonderful! I read The Selfish Gene back when I took evolutionary psych in college, but I think it’s worth a re-read. Thanks for sharing, and having a nice weekend!

      I actually haven’t read The Selfish Gene yet, even though I’ve been hearing about for years. I should really get to it sometime! Thanks for linking up! :)

    Good point! It’s like fiction becomes code for “well written.” But as long as it gets more readers to read good nonfiction, that’s OK with us. :) Thanks for weighing in and the mention.

      I agree! I think it’s too bad nonfiction gets such a bad rap sometimes, but if comparing it to fiction gets people to read more, it’s all for the good :)

      Exactly! I’ve read nonfiction where I get completely swept up in the story, just as much as in really good fiction.
