My screen name is a play on ChiTown where I live, i.e.Chicago. As a carpenter, I always watch the weather closely since it affects the day's work.

Book List for LAbonbon:
I'm late in noticing your request for books to read. Can I include books not related to Scientists or Naturalists? I have dozens. Most of my collection were proudly owned by a scientist, my late Father! So in that sense, they're related to scientists though I think I'm stretching the meaning beyond the breaking point.
I'll start with Noam Chomsky and "Propaganda and the Public Mind" and many, many other books and lectures by him. I've been following him since the early nineties, when the documentary "The Manufacture of Consent" was produced. It was offered as an "Art Film" at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Then there's Thomas Mann, "The Magic Mountain" which is fascinating if you can tolerate getting bogged down on each page. Keep a dictionary handy. I read the whole thing in six months!
I am going to add books here when I can think of any, as time permits.
Everyone feel free to add your own.
