Some subscribers to MathEdCC might be interested in "Over Fifty
Suggestions of Books For a Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics (STEM) Education Book Club" [Hake (2011)].

The abstract reads:

*********************************************
ABSTRACT: POD's Linda Serro, in a post "STEM Education Books,"
requested suggestions for "STEM Education book titles that might be
appropriate for a book club." PODers Nilson, Nuhfer, Smith, and
Nelson suggested a few books and possible sources of books from which
I derived 25 book titles. I add 26 more for a total of 51
references. These constitute only a tiny fraction of the books that
might be appropriate for a STEM education book club. Others may wish
to add their own recommendations.

"People have nowadays . . . got a strange opinion that everything
should be taught by lectures. Now, I cannot see that lectures can do
so much good as reading the books from which the lectures are taken.
Lectures were once useful; but now, when we can all read, and books
are so numerous, lectures are unnecessary. "
Samuel Johnson according to James Boswell (1791)
