In our office is a bookshelf. On that bookshelf are all the books we get sent to review. Most of them won't end up on curriculum book lists, but here are some of my favorites.
3:12 to show me a list of 10 books? Can't you find a better way to provide this information? I only made it to book #4.
I might like to check out some of these books, so a list of the titles and respective authors would be appreciated. I ain't gonna sit through a lengthy boring video, though, writing out all the names. Not worth it, sorry.
Granted some of the books looked oddly interesting or even entertaining such as "101 outer space projects for the evil genius" but honestly wouldent it have been a better idea to go and read ten new books that relitively meant anything related to or refrencing science on a serious matter?? Thats just my opinion and i could be wrong... i higly doubt such but anyway here is a list of ten good books relevant to science :) maby the authors will think about offering me a job lol i can find lots more articles to produce.

#2 Alpha and Omega: The Search for the Beginning and End of the Universe by Charles Seife
#3Annals of the Former World by John McPhee

My god I just hated it that you didn't have a single book by Feynman... if you're talking about science your collection absolutely MUST have a couple of Feynman books.
