About This Summer Reading Program

Welcome to the Woodridge Public Library’s 2014 Adult Summer Reading Program!

Our theme this year, Literary Elements, gives you an opportunity to read about science-—math and astronomy, for example, or gardening and minerals.

Log each book you read or listen to here. Each book is an entry in the weekly drawings.

What counts as a book? Just about anything, but there are some restrictions. Cookbooks do not count, and neither do how-to manuals, travel guides, textbooks, magazines, or children’s books. Any format works, though—books, audio books, or e-books.

Please count only books that you have checked out or downloaded from the Library and that you have read from June 2 through July 26.

Enter as many times as you like. The more you read the more chances you will have of winning a prize.

Review
Wonderful, difficult introduction to the incredible mathematical insights in the last 50 years. Math has predicted some of the fundamental particles in quantum physics, and has begun to link the sciences together in their symmetries. Math describes more than we yet know of the physical world. Only 243 pages, but thought-provoking. Not an easy read but worthwhile to explore.

Review
This series just improves as the books progress for me. Definitely felt more of a connection to Mendoza in this one (probably due to her past experiences in In the Garden of Iden) and cared more about the outcome. Still think the plot is a bit slow to develop, but oddly it doesn't take away that much from the enjoyment of the book.
