Yikes--I need to read more for this challenge!

QB--Astronomy: Circumference by Nicolas Nicastro. This is an Early Reviewers book, and here is my review:

A good chunk of this book is not about Eratosthenes, the librarian at Alexandria who made a remarkably accuracte measure of the Earth's circumference in the 200s B.C., but rather is about the nature of science at that time. I thought that Nicastro's description of the various approaches to science by different groups and the way scientific method changed over time was interesting and informative, and probably much better reading than a book devoted entirely to Eratosthenes's theories. It also helped me to understand why Eratosthenes's method was notable. I liked this book overall, and I felt that Nicastro's other career as a novelist served him well. I got a little bogged down in some of the descriptions of geometrical methods and calculations, and I think the book would have benefited from some more diagrams and such for those of us who remember very little of high school trigonometry.

GR--Folklore: Legends of Texas: Lost mines and buried treasure by J. Frank Dobie, ed. Review:

This is a collection of legends about buried treasure and lost mines in early Texas. It's really more of an academic book about how legends develop and the connections between them than a book of stories to be read for fun. The legends are arranged either by type or by location so that the reader can see how multiple similar legends developed. The editor has also included fairly extensive footnotes about the historical basis for the legends and other tidbits of information. If you're looking for something to help you understand Texas legends from that perspective, this book is pretty good.

However, it's not what I had expected, a collection of re-tellings of adventures and legends that would be fun to read. Most of the legends are repetitive, and only some of them are well-written. Most of them also have racist language and/or ideas (the book was written in 1924).

The most interesting thing I learned is that the e-mail scam in which someone allegedly from Nigeria tells the recipient that he has oodles of money in a U.S. bank and just needs the recipient to pay a certain amount to release the funds (and then the recipient will get a share of the fortune) is not new. Dobie describes as "a tale common to both legend and roguery" scams by prisoners (one in 1911) where the prisoners would write someone on the outside to send funds to help the prisoner get back home in exchange for the prisoner then showing that person where a treasure was buried.

I haven't been keeping up with this too much. I think I am going to start a new thread so I can break up the big list of books I've read, as others have done, but in the interim, here are some new ones:

BS--The Bible: First Corinthians (Interpretation Bible Studies)
PL--Languages and literatures of Eastern Asia, Africa, Oceania: The Analects of Confucius (I read this in college but didn't realize that it counted for this category)
SH--Aquaculture, Fisheries, Angling: The Hungry Ocean
