Happy Pi Day! (And Happy Birthday, Albert Einstein!)

Why not celebrate Pi Day (3/14) by reading some great books about Pi (or Pie)?

Life of Pi by Yann Martel — The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes. The ship sinks….

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley — It is the summer of 1950, and at the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, young Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events. For Flavia, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw.

The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer — As London is emerging from the shadow of World War II, writer Juliet Ashton discovers her next subject in a book club on Guernsey–a club born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi after its members are discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island.

Perhaps you’re more interested in baking a pie to celebrate Pi Day? We’ve got cookbooks for you!

Or maybe you just want to kickback and watch a Pi/Pie movie?

Today is also Albert Einstein’s birthday, so if you’re not into Pi/Pie perhaps an Einstein biography?

Whatever you’re into, have a great Pi Day! (Did we miss your favorite way to celebrate Pi Day? Let us know in the comments!)
