Reading progress update: I've read 84 out of 414 pages.

The Science of Discworld - Terry Pratchett, Jack Cohen, Ian Stewart

Alright, the chapter on Stardust may have helped to inject a bit more life into the book, or at least into the science parts (the Wizard parts are what kept me reading so far!).

 

While the chapter did discuss things about chemistry and elements on a basic level, at least it was possible to read it without rolling my eyes or having to use Google - and it wasn't about astrophysics, which helped immensely.

 

Onwards, Sombrero-Agrippa!
