Amy wishes us to highlight a book or two that we discovered through another blog. It's the power of the Book Blogosphere! More contagious than Zombie plague. Chris Howard even devotes a weekly feature to it: Bad Bloggers. Not that he's so innocent himself; he's contributed to many of the books on my list.
So what have I read because of bloggers?
The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason. This was on a ridiculous number of blogs a couple of years ago. I had been on Colleen's blog and didn't even know she wrote a book!
I can't remember who recommended Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese (maybe Devourer of Books?) but someone raved about it
Swapna Krishna reviewed The Pluto Files by Neil deGrasse Tyson and I went right out and picked it up from the library.
Amy from My Friend Amy challenged us to read a book from Newsweek's 50 Books for Our Times. I chose Why Evolution Is True by Jerry Coyne
