New and improved: bookshelf and Carnival of Mathematics

Two things today: first, I’ve updated my “bookshelf” (go to, scroll down a bit and look in the right margin). The books come from my LibraryThing library, and I’ve now figured out how to write reviews of the books and have them show up directly in my bookshelf! I’ve added one or two reviews but plan to add more over the coming weeks. I also plan to write blog posts reviewing a few particular books I’ve acquired recently. If you’re looking for a fun math book, I hope you’ll find this a good place to start!

I’m also excited by the rebirth of the Carnival of Mathematics, which had fallen on hard times recently. Mike Croucher of Walking Randomly has graciously volunteered to take over organizational duties. Jason Dyer will be hosting the next one on November 6.
