I knew going into this that there would be some books that I did not want to read. But, I decided that I would give all of the books on the list a fair shake, and would read them. I stand by that statement.
The random number chosen was 79. As I scanned down the list, I saw that it would be a science book. I always loathed science in school (I was more of a literature/history sorta gal), so I felt my face scrunch up as I saw what was chosen.
On The Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin.
I am a born again Christian. I believe in Creation. I will not get in a debate about this. This will be a good book for me to read. To read something completely unassociated with myself and my beliefs is good mental exercise. This is the essence of good conversation: to be well versed in both sides of the argument.
So today during my lunch, I will take a stroll to my beloved main branch of the public library, and will take out the tome. According to the website, it is "available." Imagine that! I figured there would be a waiting list.
