    The Terebratulacea (Brachiopoda), Triassic to Recent: A Study of the Brachidia (Loops) by Cooper. Super technical piece of literature with a lot of brachiopod terminology. I found it in a pile of old books that a professor was giving away.

    Waiting for a delayed flight reading a cool paleontology book about the prehistoric shark Helicoprion. I always wondered about its weird tooth whorl, and the reconstructions that I saw in books as a kid never made much sense. This book finally creates a Helicoprion that at least seems realistic, although I’m not sure if the case is closed just yet.

    Teaching Paleontology in the 21st Century edited by Peg Yacobucci and Rowan Lockwood. This is a volume of papers surrounding new methods, techniques, or activities to help teach paleontology with a focus on undergraduate students. I got this from a book sale through the Paleontological Research Institute several years ago! Excellent read, not really technical and spans a lot of topics in paleontology.

    One of the first fossil books I purchased. Good for beginners to start thinking about fossils and the diversity of life on Earth. Anyone else have this book?

    • At first glance I thought I had this. There is an Eyewitness book that looks remarkably like this but with different authors and a different subtitle that I have. We’re saving that for our granddaughter. My first fossil book was the original Ohio Fossils by La Rocque and Marple, 1955 – not to be confused with the recent Fossils of Ohio.

    • @jkallmeyer – I think I may have that book as well, I’ll have to check my shelf. I have several that look really similar that I purchased all at the same time. Oh wow! You’ll have to add a picture to the group sometime or on my Fossils of Ohio book post so we can compare.

    The Phylogeny of the Fissiculate Blastoids by Breimer and Macurda 1972. I have spent the last five years with these critters in my mind. One day I was so frustrated by not being able to find this book to purchase online that I emailed Brad Macurda and asked if he had an extra copy. HE DID! And of his addition to this, another monograph in 1983. He signed and sent them both to me. Both very influential pieces of work.
