Help SciFri Make a Summer Reading List

by Julie Leibach

Beach weather is coming, and we at SciFri can hardly wait to spend some time in the sun reading a fantastic book. With your help, we’re compiling a collection of science-themed titles, broken into three categories: 
 
1) Recent favorites (from 2013 and 2012)
2) Classic favorites (of all time)
3) Favorite science fiction 
 
Make your recommendations—including why you liked the book—in the comments section at the end of this post. In a week, we’ll comb through your suggestions and pick top titles based on audience and staff enthusiasm. Then, on May 31st, we’ll chat about the final list on the show, along with our May book club pick, Bill Bryson’s A Walk In the Woods.
 
To make sure your favorite book gets considered, please comment by the end of the day on May 22, 2013.
