1) Roach, Mary(editor). The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2011. 2011. Mariner/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Paperback: 361 pages. Price: $14.95 U.S.
SUMMARY: Edited by outrageously curious science writer Mary Roach, author of Stiff, Spook, Bonk, and Packing for Mars, this collection brings together the best and brightest writers on science and nature.
RECOMMENDATION: If you enjoy science and nature writing, you'll enjoy this book! I liked the essays by Jonathan Franzen "Emptying the Skies", Jon Mooallem "The Love That Dare Not Squawk Its Name" and the poignant essay by Jill Sisson Quinn titled: "Sign Here If You Exist."
