Carl Sagan's Billions and Billions is wonderful and wonderful!! The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt, which was the bookclub book, is a lovely teacher/student relationship developed over the course of a school year of Wednesdays through Shakespeare. Higher by Neal Bascomb is about the sky-scraper building battle between the Chrysler Building and 40 Wall Street with the Empire State thrown in for good measure. What went on to get these buildings built was amazing outrageous. Plus my reread of rest of The Seventh Tower series by Garth Nix, the first of which I reread in May and all of which I love!!
