Musing Mondays (Feb.20)

This week’s Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading asks…

“This week’s musing asks…

What is the last book that you learned something from? What book was it, and what did it teach you?

Although I am not a major non-fiction reader, last year A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson was one of the few non-fictions I read and that did teach me a lot of things about this universe of ours. The book does touch upon an astonishing variety of topics, from Quantum Physics, Geology, Biology to Palaeontology, the origin of human beings and theories on mass extinction. Some of it I knew from before and some of it was news to me. Overall, A Short History of Nearly Everything was quite educational and entertaining.
