American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot by Craig Ferguson
American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

TheLibertine, January 3, 2011

Between the Bridge and the River

TheLibertine, January 3, 2011

Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach
Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void

TheLibertine, January 3, 2011

In typical Roach fashion, "Packing for Mars" is a book grounded in solid scientific practice and elevated to high art through humor. She asks the questions that most of us would not have the courage to ask.
