Science Book a Day 20 Most Popular Books of 2013

Alright, it’s 2014 and I thought it would be a good time to highlight the most viewed books of 2013. I started this blog on June 1, 2013, so obviously the stats are limited to the first 7 months that we’ve ben running. But I’ll be doing this each year that I’m running this blog, so I thought it would be a good place to start. So far, we’ve featured 215 books, so let’s see what the most popular books are.

Congratulations to Gregory Berns for his great book How Dogs Love Us and James Barrat for Our Final Invention. Gregory’s book was featured in October and James’ in November. These books have been of great interest to those that have come to the blog and have shot to the top of the charts for 2013. But 1001 InventionsWhat do women wantMeet your happy chemicals and The Philosophical Breakfast Club have been consistent favourites throughout the year, so it’s no surprise that they have remained in the top 20 for 2013.
