Monday Geology Picture: A Geology Bookshelf
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
I was doing a quick workout tape in the living room this evening and pondering what I might feature for this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” when my eye wandered over to one shelf of one of our bookshelves. The lowermost shelf of the bookshelf next to our TV has a decidedly geological theme, as you can see in the above picture. My husband and I have many, many geology books… this shelf features just a few of them, ranging from highly technical geological reference books to fun geology-themed popular science books.
What geological books are found on your bookshelves?
Do you have any of Sarah Andrew’s wonderful geology-themed mysteries in there? I actually have a mention in the “thanks” section of one for helping her on one of the books!
Other than standard undergraduate textbooks, rock/mineral guides, and field books, I lovingly include a copy of Leopold’s A View of the River and some other collections of short essays on water resources.
Who is Sarah Andrew, and what books did she write? Combining mystery and geology — hmmm, sounds very interesting.
She’s a geology professor and all-around Good Person. Here’s her website: http://www.sarahandrews.net/ . It’s so nice to read a mystery that uses geology in it that Gets It Right.
