Best Science Books 2013: Library Journal

Every year for the last bunch of years I’ve been linking to and posting all the “year’s best sciencey books” lists that I can find around the web in various media outlets.

From the beginning it’s been a pretty popular service so I’m happy to continue it. The previous posts for all the 2013 lists are here.

This time it's Library Journal Best Books 2013 Top Ten, Sci-Tech.

  • Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink
  • Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation by Michael Pollan
  • The World’s Rarest Birds by by Erik Hirschfeld, Andy Swash, Robert Still
  • The Devil’s Cormorant: A Natural History by Richard J. King
  • Wolves in the Land of Salmon by David Moskowitz
  • Giraffe Reflections by Dale Peterson (text) & Karl Ammann (photos)
  • Bug Music: How Insects Gave Us Rhythm and Noise by David Rothenberg

I'm always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven't covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.

I am picking up most of my lists from Largehearted Boy. The summary post for 2012 books is here and all the posts for 2012 can be found here.

And if you wish to support my humble list-making efforts, run on over to Amazon, take a look at Quiet or Steve Jobs or The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks or maybe even something else from the today's list.
