There's now a list containing all the books that have been suggested so far:
The discussion group is currently still named for the buddy read that inspired it, "The Invention of Nature" -- the group page is here:

Inspired by the posts my fellow future potential Science Reading Buddies, I've browsed my shelves, my tbr, and library catalogues for Science-related books that looked interesting.
And when I say inspired, I mean I stole lots of books off those lists also. ;)
There are lots and lots of other books I would like to read, but I needed to narrow down a short list.
Also, I have created a shelf for the long-list and science books I have read.
This seemed to be the most referenced book in Stoned by Aja Raden. So I picked it up from the library as well. I'm glad I read Stoned first. I liked Raden's style of writing more than Finlay's.
Jewels is an interesting read too, I just found it a little dry. Also I wish the book had footnotes rather than notes at the back. It was annoying to have to keep flipping back and forth while reading.
