ATTN: BOOKISH TYPES

I LIKE TO READ MOSTLY NON-FICTION BOOKS ABOUT SPACE, NATURAL HISTORY, AND PHYSICS. I ALSO ENJOY POIGNANT MEMOIRS, AND CLEVER NOVELS. IF YOU KNOW OF ANY BOOKS THAT FALL INTO THESE CATEGORIES OR BOOKS THAT ARE JUST TOO DAMN GOOD TO BE MISSED, I AM CURRENTLY ACCEPTING BOOK SUGGESTIONS.

You should read all the short stories of Rick Bass (it's fictionial but it could not, it doesn't matter). I haven't read the memories of John Muir (but I want to) be it seems to be great.

Songlines by Bruce Chatwin. I'll stop there, before the titles start tumbling out.
