Here are a few things to help you in your search:
- I tag books "Living Science" and "Science Spines" on LibraryThing and I add informative notes whenever possible.
- I will be blogging more about Living Science Authors and Living Science Series here.
- You can see my book reviews pop-up when your mouse moves over a book on the Shelfari book shelf on the left; you can scroll through the books with a button at the bottom of the shelf. These are also tagged "Living Science" and "Science Spines"
These tags and reviews reflect our family's experience; you may have a completely different take on a book. Still, I hope you can at least get an idea of a book's general nature so you can decide if it is worth your time checking out. (I do have an Amazon Associate number that will help support this work should you buy a book through the link in the pop-up. I thank you if you should choose to do so.)A great reference source for living books in all subjects is For the Love of Literature by Maureen Wittmann. Simply Charlotte Mason has a book finder that hopefully will have more user reviews as time goes on. There's always Amazon's comment section for each book, too, that can be a source of good information once you know a title you're interested in.
Hopefully this will help you find living books to more easily study science without a curriculum. Please comment on any other sources you use to find living science books!
