Day 02 – A book that you wish more people had read

I’m not sure I have a good answer for this one. Possibly Kim Stanley Robinson’s “Science in the Capital” series, encompassing FORTY SIGNS OF RAIN, FIFTY DEGREES BELOW, and SIXTY DAYS AND COUNTING, which I find to be brilliant, thought-provoking, and exciting environmental novels. They remind me of Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself” with their lyricism: they are books which should be read at least half-aloud to appreciate the rhythm of the words. They are not, I fear, easy reads, but I really like them. At the very least I wish all politicians would read them.

Darn. That’s all I’ve got for this one.
