From the just-for-fun files: Did you know there are books on the International Space Station? The folks over at LibraryThing have cataloged the library of the International Space Station — so far they’ve located 100 titles aboard the station.

What are the astronauts reading? Not surprisingly, a lot of science fiction, but also everything from “The Last of the Mohicans” to David Sedaris. Check out the full list at http://www.librarything.com/profile/IntlSpaceStation.
