Re: JULY 2002 - Book of the Month! We need suggestions...
I recently joined a book discussion group here in Cincinnati. It's much like this one. We choose a book each month, read it, and then meet together in the library to discuss it. But their books are limited to science.
I'm going to suggest some of the books that I'll be reading for this discussion group because I'm lazy. If we choose some of the same books here at BookTalk I'll only have to read one book that month instead of two. We just finished Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery. I didn't actually read that one because I came in so late. But I'm planning to join in with July's book. Here is what we'll be reading for the remainder of 2002: July
- Animal Minds: Beyond Cognition to Consciousness
by Donald R. Griffin August
- The Greatest Benefit to Mankind: A Medical History of Humanity
by Roy Porter September
- The Mismeasure of Man
by Stephen Jay Gould October
- Extinct Humans
by Ian Tattersall and Jeffrey H. Schwartz November
by David Bodanis December
- Seven Daughters of Eve
by Bryan Sykes
Any of these books interest me. So does a book on Native Americans. I'll read pretty much anything.
