Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Reading progress update: I've read 112 out of 219 pages.

The Science of Everyday Life - Marty Jopson

I didn't get quite as much read as I'd hoped over our holiday weekend, but I did get through the first two chapters and about half of the third. 


I feel confident now saying that, though i'm enjoying this, it's not as good as Storm in a Teacup; it covers more topics, and I like the writing - it's more obviously wry and humorous that Czerski's - but it lacks the narrative flow Storm in a Teacup has and that lack of connectedness dings my enthusiasm.  


Regardless though, I'm learning a lot about a lot; there's some overlap with Czerski's book, but even those overlaps come at the topic from a different angle or perspective, adding to what i've already learned, rather than repeating it.
