Geeky Gift for Science-Lovers: The Periodic Table of Elements Coloring Book

I received a copy of the Periodic Table of Elements Coloring Book free for review. All opinions are my own.  Confession time: when I was in school, I didn’t like chemistry.

Even though I had no interest in reading the books, I still felt bad for murdering them. I wonder what the … [Read more...]
