My favorite science books

 

With so many smart digital devices nowadays, I am actually surprised that some people still prefer hardcover copies of books. In fact, I am surprised that people read at all, given the abundance of online information in form of video clips.

However, reading is not only one of the noblest leisure activities, it is also the only activity that makes you smarter and expands your area of knowledge, interest, and expertise. So whether you choose to read on the printed versions or on smart devices like Kindles or tablets, I advise you to keep on reading anything and everything.

I am a passionate science reader who is willing to devour anything that has a scientific base. From alien conspiracies to some of the world’s best-kept secrets and natural curiosities, I find science to be the fascinating subject in the world. Thus, I am willing to share with you my top science books if you’re looking for something new to read.
