A Saturday's Worth Of Books

I thought it might be good to share books we are reading with the 13.7 community so here are a few of things on my shelf now. Some of these may end up as longer blogs someday.

1) Fundamental Forces of Nature: The Story of Gauge Fields by Kerson Huang

2) Mind and Cosmos by Thomas Nagel

3) The Brain Supremacy by Katheleen Taylor

4) The Particle at the End of the Universe by Sean Carroll

So much great stuff to read!
