Might I suggest, just to be different, that you look into Lewis Thomas.
Dr. Thomas is not as widely known as many other scientists, but he was a
wonderful writer of essays.
Go to the library and check out "The Medusa and the Snail" or "Lives of a Cell".
I think that by reading his essays you will be entertained, educated and,
quite possibly, become passionately interested in biology.
