Then I get interviewed for the Jewish Star:

Finished Another Book!

Having completed On the Origin of Species a few weeks ago, I spotted The Reluctant Mr. Darwin - by David Quammen - in my local library. I picked it up, read it with relish, and expanded my brain even more.

It was quite fascinating to see an idea, ahem, evolve in a man's brain. It was then more fascinating to see what happens to a big idea when it's let loose into the wild.

I need more now. This looks interesting: Why Evolution is True. I'll put a hold on it at my library.
