Smithsonian Nature Guide Rocks and Minerals by Ronald BonewitzThis was a Christmas present to myself as I browsed the shelves in Barnes and Noble (dont worry, I did come away with gifts for others, too).
As one who has always liked rocks, I finally decided to get more official about my interest. 2016 goal--I intend to take this fascinating guidebook with me as I go rock hunting in future. Maybe then I can actually identity a specimen by something more meaningful than Ooh! Pretty rock!
In the meantime, this book is a fascinating, colorful armchair read, too.
