Some Kindle Selections for National Readathon Day
Welcome to the SB&F Editor's Blog. I am Maria Sosa, Editor-in-Chief of SB&F. Through this blog I hope to interact with the SB&F community and post news and information related to science books, videos, authors, opportunities and other topics of interest to our readers. I hope you find the blog useful and entertaining. Please, join the conversation by posting a comment on our Facebook page. I'd love to hear from you!


National Readathon Day (NRD) is a nation-wide marathon reading session on Saturday, January 24 from Noon – 4pm (in respective time zones). Sponsored by The National Book Foundation, and Penguin Random House, NRD asks book lovers across America to pledge to read for four hours today starting at noon. 

To help you find a good STEM book to read, we've added a section to our online Amazon store that links to 9 great science books for your Kindle. The list includes Kevin Fong's Extreme Medicine, winner of the 2015 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize in the Young Adult Category. 

In addition to reading a great book, you can join in the National Reading Day celebration by tweeting a picture of yourself reading (or of the book you are reading) between noon and 4:00 pm on January 24 with the hashtag #timetoread.

Happy Reading!
