I am a geek

Yup, I'm a geek. I decided I want to learn about quantum physics (no, not because of The Big Bang Theory) so I just placed an order for the following books:

Physics I For Dummies
Physics II For Dummies
Physics Workbook For Dummies
Quantum Physics For Dummies
Quantum Physics Workbook For Dummies

This all started because hubby and I were talking about string theory and I really don't understand it. I'd like to jump right in at the QP level, but I thought the basic physics books might help lay a good foundation. I haven't had a physics course since 1980 so I probably need the refresher.

I will not read these books until NaNoWriMo is over (or my novel is complete).

I admire you for wanting to understand quantum physics. I actually find the subject really interesting, though I can only follow it to a certain point before I become hopelessly lost. Even my mom, who's good at math and science (unlike me), said that she couldn't follow a program she watched on PBS about string theory. *g* Well, I hope you enjoy your new text books and gain a better grasp of quantum physics -- once NaNo is over, of course. :-)
I have no idea how far I'll get in understanding it, but I'll give it a shot.
