    Principles Of Physical Geology

    by Professor Arthur Holmes FRS. A blast from the past. The other day I read something, I forget what now, about magma. I knew it was about hot stuff from the earth, but couldn't say anymore than that. I went to my bookshelves. Took down this great volume. Index. Page numbers...

    I Really Enjoyed...

    The World Without Us by Alan Wiesman. I found it to be really interesting, as a matter of fact it's now one of my favorite books. Unlike my usual way of reading, I read this sporadically and gave myself time to ruminate over what I'd read, and over all it was seriously...

    The Laws Of Thermodynamics

    "the Bell Jar" S.plath

       "The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath. I was blown away by her style of writing, beautiful, amazing  voice of a poet  narrating a story in proze. Be careful though, this is an authobiographical novel about Plath's struggle with suicidal depression, and it will...
