"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers" Charles William Elliot
|This is what I am reading now. How Plants Work is a layman's guide to botany; I discovered some amazing things about where the colors from plants originate. The other one, Lab Girl, I would highly recommend, along with E.O. Wilson's Letters to a Young Scientist to high school age women considering a career in the sciences. Some of the notions you have been told about those fields of study aren't true; don't bypass an amazing way to spend your life, we work most of it after all, because of some preconceived notions.
