It's December. Time to don your Snuggie
and curl up with a good book. And we have just the one: The Planets
by Dava Sobel
. (Sobel's previous best-sellers include Longitude
and Galileo's Daughter
A review in The Guardian
describes the book as a "very agreeable read" that "attempts to combine astronomy with history, poetry, mythology and folklore."
That sounds agreeable to us. So get reading and get ready to tell us what you thought of the book. The book club meets next on December 21. Call in with your comments, or leave them below.
