It’s a great day to be a space geek — today marks fifty years since we landed on the moon.

And, of course, there are plenty of recommending-reading lists in the event’s honor. Here's a sampling:

Diehards should head straight to Space and Science News for the new books these astronomy buffs recommend.

The average Joe or Jane, on the other hand, can check out what the Seattle Times suggests for new space-themed books and other media set in space (like movies and TV shows) to enjoy, or the top twenty-five sci-fi books on or about the moon, according to Best Science Fiction Books.

Want to go old-school? If you can find it, there's The Autobiography of Robert Hutchings Goddard, Father of the Space Age, a copy of which went to the moon with Buzz Aldrin.

And if space isn't really your thing but you like to be tangentially topical, Ranker invites you to browse (and vote on) the best books that have moon in the title.
