This year has seen an explosion of books written by science bloggers, and it looks like the trend is going to continue well into 2010.
- John Wilkins considered the idea of “species” from a historical perspective, and it looks like he’s got plenty more to say on the subject.
- Chad Orzel’s forthcoming title will tell you How to Teach Physics to Your Dog.
- Darren Naish just saw the publication of his beautiful volume The Great Dinosaur Discoveries. If you like dinosaurs, you need this book.
- Word has it that even PZ Myers is working on some super-secret book project.
Apologies if I missed anyone or any titles (feel free to make additions/corrections in the comments), but there have been so many new blogger-penned books that it has been hard to keep track of them all! Even though I have not read many (or even most) of these titles, it is good to see so many of my science blogging peers in print. This year especially, it seems that a few authors have taken up science blogging and a number of bloggers have transformed ideas from their blogs into books, transitions that I am hoping to discuss in more detail during a session at ScienceOnline2010 in January.
