Books to read during tadoku contest

The fourth, right? tadoku contest is just around the corner and I started to look for books I'm going to read during the contest. I've been reading mostly romance or erotica lately, but I'm kind of fed up with reading same mellow and hot stories, so for the contest I chose different and much challenging books. Here are some of them.
A Short History of Nearly Everything
A Short History of Nearly Everything Silent Spring
Silent Spring
Both of them are rather tough read for me and I was able to manage to read about half so far. If I read them with audiobooks, I should be able to reach to the end, so I bought bill bryson's CD at bookdepositoy, which you can have 1o% off coupon for summer reading!, and silent spring's audio at audible. I looove bill bryson, so I'm terribly excited to get my hands on the CD maybe in two weeks.
Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body
Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body
I don't know why I picked this one, but don't you think the cover illustration is so tempting??? Well, considing that fact that I read it with my kindle, the cover illustration won't mean anything, though... The theme is paleontology, but there seem to be not many jargon and language is natural.

娘の学校でも買ってもらわねばです!
いいよねーほんと。
それでまたさ、これを見つけてくる久留米のメンバーってのがすごいでしょ?
みんないくらプッシュしてもネットを使おうとしなくって、アナログなの。その情報量たるや、おっどろきもの。

アナログなのに、こういうの見つけるって、その方がすごいじゃん。どうやって探してるんだろう??
うーん、ネットワーク I mean,人脈・仲間って大事だねー。

これをミッケした人は、その道の専門家。講師だから昼間の集まりにも参加できることがあるの。BTW,ここに書いちゃうけど、掲示板の
”これを機に日本以外にtadokuが広まるといいと期待しています。”は、意図的に書かれたものだとするとショックだな。tadokuが世界へも広がっていることは、もうとっくの昔から先生に伝えていることで、だからこそ多読について英語でも書いてほしいとプッシュしてきた。多読コンテストのこともそうだよね、2回目の時に伝えた。それなのにこれを機に?なんだそりゃ!?
