Let’s Talk Science

October 1st, 2008

Hey Everyone!

I’d like to invite you to join the new TWIS book club.

We’ll be reading a book a month about something science-y. At the end of each month we will get together online and discuss the books and the science. I’m really looking forward to getting to hear what others think about the books we read, and sharing my thoughts¬† with other people.

So, check it out if you are so inclined.¬† Let’s get smart together!
