Spring Reading

This week, the Broke and the Bookish asks…what books will you be reading this spring?

1. Cycle Journey
I’m itching to read someone’s account of cycling across the United States, but there are so many out there I haven’t decided on one yet!

2. The Universe Within: Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People, Neil Shubin
I’ve been meaning to read Shubin’s Your Inner Fish for a while now, but this one channels Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

3. Confessions of a Straphanger: Saving Our Cities  and Ourselves from the Automobile, Taras Grescoe

4. Religion for Atheists: A Nonbeliever’s Guide to the Uses of Religion, Alain de Botton

5. Earth: An Intimate History, Richard Fortey

6. Antifragile: How Things Gain from Disorder, Nassim Nicholas Taleb

7. Buddhism without Beliefs, Stephen Prothero, or similar.

8. Atomic Awakening: A New Look at the History and Future of Nuclear Power, James Mahaffey

9.  Fighting Traffic: the American City and the Dawn of the Automobile Age, Peter Norton

10. St. George’s Day is 24 April, and my reading around that time will celebrate England. I’ve not yet sorted out which books I’ll be reading, but Bernard Cornwell will certainly make a showing. Christian Wolmar’s Fire and Steam, a history of railways in Britain, is likely.  Other possibilities: Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and P.G. Wodehouse.
