March Random Reads selection

It's time to select my Random Read for March! Last month, my Random Read was Stardoom: A Scientific Account of the Beginning and End of the Universe by Paul Davies. I sort of started it, and then decided I didn't really want to read it, and into the donate pile it went.

So it's off to the random number generator. Normally I would use the total number of books on my TBR shelf (765), but I'm taking a cue from a few other Random Reads participants and trying out using a subset of my TBR shelf to make sure an older book gets picked. So I'm entering 48 as the min (to skip all the review copies and other stuff I'm planning to read soon anyway) and 428 as the max (so that the range only includes books I've had sitting around since 2009 or earlier).

Drum roll, please!

For February’s Random Read I'll be reading Argument: Critical Thinking, Logic and the Fallacies by John Woods, et al. It's been on my TBR shelf since May 18, 2009. Wow. That's three non-fiction books in a row, Random Reads! What are you trying to do to me?! I guess that's good, though. Non-fiction books have an unfortunate tendency to appear on my to read shelf and then never leave.
