Today I was doing some work in my library. Of course, when this happens I usually end up shuffling my reading pile.
My reading pile is part physical and part mental. I may have books placed where they are ready to be picked up and be read soon, but I also have a mental list of what I want to read next.
The reading pile is always being shuffled as my mind wanders. Current events also have an impact on my reading pile.
Tonight I will share some books that have been shuffled upwards in the reading pile.
Here is The Pleasure of Finding Things Out by Richard P. Feynman. This book is a compilation of some of the short works by Feynman. I have read some of the works in the book, but need to read more of them.
I at least have some Math genes as I have an engineering degree and did well in Math classes in school. This will be an interesting read, especially looking at it through an education lens.
This book has some great chapter headings and I am definitely curious about some of them. I want to know who The Scholar in Cell Block 2 was and what was The Unkindest Cut.
The Stranger & the Statesman: James Smithson, John Quincy Adams, and the Making of America’s Greatest Museum: The Smithsonian is by Nina Burleigh. This looks to be a great look at the history of the museum.
This book also has some good chapter titles like The Body Snatchers and 105 Sacks of Gold.
Will I end up reading these soon, or will they get shuffled back down the list?
