Independent (UK) columnist Alex Johnson explores a unique collection of books every week and in this column he’s come up with something that’s truly out of this world – a list of favorites from the International Space Station.
Not surprisingly, the collection has its share of science fiction. However, it’s also varied and eclectic with a number of somewhat unexpected choices ranging from The Federalist Papers to Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind to The Jeeves Omnibus by PG Wodehouse.
Oh! They also have a small children’s book collection that supports “an excellent ongoing project called Story Time from Space that encourages children’s interest in reading and space.”
