Thing 55b - Complete

55b. Walk into the library, select one book based on the cover, and spend a weekend reading it

Date Completed: 22 September 2017

Nothing caught my eye on either the Hispanic History Month or Hot Picks shelves, so I wandered over to the new arrivals. It's good that I selected one from there because it kept me from "cheating" and picking up something from my wish list. I ended up choosing Lost Science: Astonishing Tales of Forgotten Genius by Kitty Ferguson. It's a collection of stories about people who made scientific advances but are largely forgotten today, of people who are known but whose own legends have overshadowed their actual accomplishments, or of those who discovered/invented something first but didn't necessarily get credited with it by history. It was good. I actually finished it Sunday night, which wasn't even required.
