John Whitfield is embarking on a quest: He's going to read On the Origin of Species by Darwin's birthday (Feb. 12). Not only that, but he's blogging about it.
Having just picked up a copy at my local half-priced bookstore--and despite being in the middle of three other books--I think I'm going to try to follow along. I can't guarantee that I'll respond to every chapter, but as I've never actually read it, I figure now's as good a time as any. If nothing else, by the end I'll at least be able to counter quote-mining creationists with "Have you actually read the book?" and not be hypocritical.
