      Yay! Glad you like the selections! Admittedly, it can be a little nerve-wracking piecing together books that will appeal to a large group of people. =) Glad you’re participating in OJ!

    I am new to this, but very excited in expanding my reading horizons. I am currently and undergraduate researching batteries, so any book(s) that would help even out my work week would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for this project!

      I would think reading a phone book would be more exciting than researching batteries. =) Kidding! Thanks for joining the fun and happy to provide a diversion!
