Although we write stuff for you to read, we read too!
Sharing resources and readings is one of the biggest ways that we self-educate. Free Radicals Reads is a way for us to share some of that with you. In Free Radicals Reads you will find some of our personal recommendations and a few words about why they are worth checking out.
We also want to hear from you–have you read/heard/seen anything you want to recommend to other Free Rads readers? If so, let us know here and we can feature it in the next edition of Free Rads Reads.
