Since I spend a lot of time up in the air, I also spend a lot of time getting my reading in. The last book I got to indulge in was “Lab Girl” by: Hope Jahren. I was a little apprehensive reading a memoir on a life in the science world. Science was one of my least favorite subjects in school but something inside told me to give this book a chance.
Jahren made me look at plants in a new light. She actually made the plant world interesting to me. She had such lovely metaphors in her book and her prose was beautiful. She is a woman so dedicated and passionate about her craft. She gives you the opportunity to be a scientist yourself. She encourages you to really pay attention to the world around you. Jahren makes me want to literally stop and smell the roses.
