If you have lots of time on your hands submitted by Neuhoffinator on June 13, 2015, 12:04pm If you have lots of time on your hands read this book. It's a great little book - each chapter is like a short story. You can read one, day dream a bit, and then read another chapter.

Nighttime Read submitted by Peter Pasque on July 27, 2016, 1:02pm This book is a collection of dreams that Einstein might have had. My favorite way to read this book is to read 1-3 chapters, or dreams each night before bed. After a few days these stories begin to influence my dreams. It's a wonderful way to experience this creative book.
