Science TBR

Every time I write down a list of books to go after, I lose the darn thing, so I'm posting this one!

  • 10% Human: How Your Bodies Microbes Hold the Key to Health and Happiness, Alonna Callen
  • Domesticated: Evolution in a Man-Made World, Richard Francis
  • Humankind: How Biology and Geography Shape Human Diversity, Alexander Harcourt
  • Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Haroni

  • The Invaders: How Humans and their Dogs Drove Neaderthals to Extinction, Pat Shipman
  • Lone Survivors: How We Came to the the Only Humans on Earth, Chris Stringer
  • The Intimate Bond: How Animals Shaped Human History, Brian Fagan

  • Into that Silent Sea: Trailblazers of the Space Era, Francis French
  • The Social Conquest of Earth, E.O. Wilson
  • Moral Tribes: Emotion, Reason, and the Gap Between Us and Them, Joshua Greene

Mostly biology/anthropology, with an odd space book thrown in. Into that Silent Sea is  a special one because I've been forgetting it for three years now.  None of these are immediate reads, though I'll go after at least one before this year is out.  I'm nearly done with my trilogy for the 2015 Reading Challenge, and after that my only real target will be the book with antonyms in the title. After that it's mopping up, really.


  1. Only one of this in my TBR pile ATM: Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Haroni. I REALLY must schedule in more science next year. I certainly have enough of it scattered around waiting to be read!

  2. My problem is the same behind my not reading any more WW1 books this year...the ones I want are mostly new releases, they haven't made it to my area libraries, and I'm too much a miser to pay full price for them. I almost always buy books used online..

  3. lol. I know what you mean. Books are expensive - especially when new. I was lusting over some interesting looking hardbacks in my favourite bookstore. Even with money off I decided to wait for the paperback or the New Years sale. It's not like I'm exactly running out of things to read!


Thank you for visiting! Because of some very clever spambots, I've had to start moderating comments more strictly, but they're approved throughout the day.
