Stuff I’ve been writing about stuff I’ve been reading, Vol. 1

I’ve started a new series over on my other blog all about things I’ve been reading lately. I figure every now and then I’ll collect together the links and share them here too! The categories this time are:

Popular Math/Books about math and/or math history for a general audience. Give this one a look *especially* if you’re chronically averse to math!
