A few weeks ago a publishing company contacted me (and many other geobloggers, I think) about reviewing a book by Gillian Turner called “North Pole South Pole: The Epic Quest to Solve the Great Mystery of Earth’s Magnetism.”

I was somewhat skeptical at first that a publisher would actually send me a free book (could this be some sort of scam?), but I decided to write back anyway. I do love books, especially when they are about geology. I requested two copies of the book- one for me and one to give away to my blog readers. To my delight, the two books arrived in my mailbox yesterday.

I am currently very busy in lab trying to finish up the last of my thesis data collection, so I’m not sure how quickly I’ll be able to read the book and write my review. I imagine I won’t have time to read the book until I’m on the mass spectrometer next week. However, a quick browse through the book and some online reviews makes me think this book might actually be pretty good.

Would you like to win a copy of Gillian Turner’s book? Good news- you can! Just post your favorite geology pun below or over at Georneys. Whoever posts the geology pun that makes me laugh the most will win this book. You have one week- I will select a winner on Wednesday, March 16th. As long as you don’t live in Anarctica, I’ll ship you the book shortly after that.

  1. I hope limericks count because I put pen to paper and think Mary had a little lamb…

    Mary found rhombohedral crystals of calcite,
    Whose color was white as snow,
    And everywhere that Mary went the exposed calcite was sure to erode.

  2. An educational and I hope, witty limerick…

    Twinkle twinkle little Larimar,
    How I wonder what you are?
    From the mineral class pectolite,
    Luster silky, what a sight!
    Twinkle twinkle little Larimar,
    What a pretty gem you are!
