Home decorating expert Martha Stewart has launched a new feature on her blog, highlighting the books she’s been reading on her Sony Reader. This week, she’s reading Cold: Adventures in the World’s Frozen Places by Bill Streever.

We uncovered the post while exploring our Best eReader Companies on Twitter directory. The book is part of Sony’s new What I’m Reading series, an interactive eBook club. Will you be reading along?

Here’s an excerpt: “It’s a captivating account of the life, history, and ecology of extreme and inhospitably cold climates.  The author, Bill Streever, a research biologist, passes along a vast amount of scientific facts and brings them all to life through an engaging narrative that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. The book begins with a 5-minute plunge into the 35-degree water of Prudhoe Bay about 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle, so vividly written that I found myself shivering.”
