The Flat Book Society: Books for May - vote for your favourites!

Reblogged from Murder by Death:

Note: because it's early in the a.m. here and I'm still suffering cold-related idiocy, I posted this with the wrong months; they've been fixed.


8 books have been nominated for the May read in the Flat Book Society.  Very few votes so far though.  


To date we have: 

The Double Helix by James D. Watson


Darwin's Ghosts: The Secret History of Evolution by Rebecca Stott


A Is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie by Kathryn Harkup


Napoleon's Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History by Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson


The Sun's Heartbeat: And Other Stories from the Life of the Star That Powers Our Planet by Bob Berman


The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee


Venomous: How Earth's Deadliest Creatures Mastered Biochemistry by Christie Wilcox


Caesar's Last Breath by Sam Kean



Voting will close  March 1st and the book for May will be announced.  So far it's a tie for the winner with The Double Helix and Darwin's Ghost, so anybody interested in joining us for the March read, be sure to vote. (There's also room on the list for about 5 more books if anybody would like to add a few for the group's voting consideration.)
