Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
What’s the most informative book you’ve read recently?
– It’s a tie between When Christ and His Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman (History) and Contagious by Scott Sigler (Science). The first book has a lot of history that I am not very familiar with and I found myself wanting to look up these characters on Wikipedia to get a feel for who they are and how they played a part in this book. Whether it’s historically accurate I am not sure, but it sure seems like it. I found myself learning a lot about this time period and it’s become a very rewarding experience. Whereas in Contagious there’s a lot of science involved in the book but it’s not complicated or difficult. It’s easily explained with simple examples (as I’m not very scientifically oriented) so you can picture and understand what’s going on there’s hardly any huge scientific words so it’s not as intimidating as you think.
That’s really as informative as I can get! what about you guys?
