I’m delighted to announce that my latest book, Naturally Curious Day by Day, has just been released. Like Naturally Curious, it takes a look at species and events that are likely to be seen/occur throughout the year in the Northeast. However, my new book presents new photos and text in a day-by-day format, as opposed to month by month. Each day of the year has anywhere from 2 – 4 entries/photos on subjects as varied as slime mold, sapsuckers and salamanders. Readers of my blog will be familiar with some of the material, as the book contains edited/expanded versions of many of the past six and a half years of posts. The book also includes new entries, short essays and sidebars. A concerted effort was made not to duplicate information found in Naturally Curious.
Naturally Curious Day by Day can be purchased in bookstores and online. If your local bookstore doesn’t have it, they will be able to order it from Globe Pequot’s distributor. I’m hoping it will help those stumped by what to give someone for Christmas! 456 pages, 1,300+ photos. Thank you!
In the interest of getting Naturally Curious Day by Day proofread in a timely manner, I decided to forego today’s post. I’m glad to report that the book is now out of my hands and will be released by Stackpole Books this fall. (You can pre-order it at independent bookstores and online.) It consists of one to three natural history entries and accompanying photographs for each and every day of the year, many of which are parts of the past six years’ blog posts. Eventually it will be possible to take a look at the inside of the book online, but not quite yet. There will be a formal announcement when the book is released, but I wanted to explain the reason behind the lack of a natural history post today.
