iseebeautyeverywhere said: Hello, I was wondering if you could recommend me some good books about science (any field, just what you like). The last time I studied science was in high school so I'd need something "vulgarized". Thanks in advance! :)
Most of the recent science books I’ve read are hidden away in boxes, and I have a terrible memory for recalling specific titles or authors.
Recently I’ve read or been reading these science books:
I’ve found all these very interesting. :)
