shubassdk: (Woot! (geography))

Yes, I do realise that I already own "A short history of nearly everything" by Bill Bryson, but that doesn't mean that I'm crazy for ordering the illustrated version, too, does it? It's just...I love it. So much. I have always been a huge physics and chemistry geek or tried to be, but the teachers and books I've had hasn't explained it to me well, so because I couldn't understand it well enough I gave up and cast my love on other things. But then I read this book a little over a year ago. And it was literally love at first sight. I took it with my to my parents' summerhouse and read for three days. My parents have told me that I kept laughing and read paragraphs for them. When I came home I started looking into the whole Geography-business. All because of one man and one book. He is the sole reason for me studying geography.

I want to urge and encourage each and everyone of you to read this book. Even if you're not really the biggest geek and don't think math is fun I really think you will enjoy it.

And now we wait for Play.com to send it to me... (and "The Last Templar", because, yes.)
