What I'm Reading Today


On the recommendation of Janet Mullany! This is a marvelous book that tells the exciting stories of Georgian/Regency scientists, explorers, and poets and how they both changed and were products of their times. Terrific.

Caroline Herschel, who discovered several comets and was the first female scientist to get a royal stipend for her work, and various wives. CH would make a good blog topic!
